FO: Featherweight Cardigan

The Featherweight Cardigan is finished.

It's impossible to take decent photos these days. Everyday seems to be dull and overcast. But at least you'll get an idea of the cardi. I knitted this with Bendigo Woollen Mills Classic 3 ply in Deep Pink on 3.5mm circular needles. My only modification was to knit the cuffs and border in moss stitch (seed stitch to some of you) instead of a K1, P1 rib.

I'm hooked on seamless cardigans. Only a few ends to weave in at the end and that's it!

Mary has led me into temptation. I've succumbed and I've joined Summer Squares.

Here is my first square. This is knitted in The Knittery 2 ply merino in Lavender (sadly no longer exists) with 3.5mm needles. My square measures 30 x 30 cm and will probably become a shawl. I have also started on a square in cotton which will become a blanket but more of that later.

The pink cardigan is wonderful! I don't suppose you have another one on the needles for me? no? oh :(

Of course I led you into temptation, that is what I do! Your square will be a beautiful shawl when it grows up.

gosh isn't that lovely? A 3ply cardigan? And seamless? That's gone straight to my TO DO list!

The square is so pretty. Looking forward to reading more about what you're doing with this.
