I’m testing my knitting abilities and modifying the ever so popular Wicked sweater to a cardigan. Just one of many knitted sweaters from the top down and ever so easy. I wonder why it’s taken me so long to cast on for this!!
With plenty of cables to keep the mind occupied, its a lovely fast and easy knit. Instead of joining to knit in the round, I knit back and forth of the sweater and carried the cable down either side of the cardigan. I’ve yet to add the sleeves and also the button hole band but it’s coming along together nicely. I’m chuffed with the progress but one thing……maybe my body shape is some what odd but I have a high waist line and Huuuuuggge wide hips, let alone a huge bum, and I left the decreasing of the waist line a little late. So the result is a somewhat low waist decrease!
Five skeins of DIC Classy in Black Parade, I think I will only use four. I love this yarn so much, the way it knits up, the colours and the cable definition is……wow.
see what I mean? That waist line should be slightly higher. I blame Mr Snobs for that cos all the time I was knitting and trying it on..he kept on saying, yes, its fine, its perfect. I also think it may be a tad on the baggy side too and long but its a cardigan and I need the room for extra clothing, right?
Cables and there’s lots of them around the neckline and down the front.
I wish my waist was this trim!
I’m also thinking of just adding about 4 buttons just on the top of the cardigan so it flairs out at the bottom, just for a different kind of look.
…..and the sleeves, full length of 3/4 lenght? What do you all think?
