Willard Cardigan Progress

I thought i’d give you a little peek at how my Willard cardigan is coming along today. It’s going quite slowly as I haven’t been able to dedicate a whole bunch of time to it amongst other work and Christmas orders, but that’s just me being impatient. Isn’t it cuuuute?

The adaptations weren’t difficult to figure out. As I bought the whole e-book, I’ve been following one of the other cardigan patterns (Kaye’s cardigan) and have substituted in the Willard colour chart. I just needed to increase one stitch before starting the colour chart so that it divided evenly into the row.

I’m thinking about doing the left side button band in the leftover pink for a bit of contrast, like this cityscape cardigan I mentioned last week. A cute little pop of pink!

And I’m really slow on the uptake, but I’ve just discovered Hannah and Pam Allen’s podcast, Knit FM – have you listened in yet? There’s 4 episodes so far so I’m heading back to the beginning to catch up. So far loads of great tips from these knowledgeable knitters.

What do you have on your needles at the moment?

    Very sensible, Sally! This is the reason I’ve done Christmas very last minute, lol – too busy sneaking in a few extra rows. :)
