Lush and Lacy Cardigan Photo

Dear Katherine,Attached are some photos of myself wearing the sweater knitted from your pattern, which I loved doing!

It was great fun, in part because your instructions were extremely detailed & clear all the way. I knitted it in Merinos Otto “Shadow”, an extrafine merino.

Oddly, I needed only about 800 yards, although I got the gauge you suggested. Also – I ended up modifying the neckline in a couple of ways; it felt too loose & floppy knitted in the same needle size as the body of the sweater, & the decreases at the front looked too angled…….so I did it over in 2 needle sizes down, twice as many rows, with decreases on alternate rows rather than on every row. It came out fitting perfectly.

I would note that I have felt like a walking advertisement for your website. I have had at least half a dozen women ask me how to get this pattern; I also had one offer to buy my sweater on the spot (the answer was no, but thanks…..).

I look forward to knitting more of your designs.

    I am a novice in knitting. Do you have any advise on any pattern booklets that would help me to do other things than just scarfs? Thanks

    This is something that I want to learn to do, knitting, the cardigan is just so very beautiful.

    You did a GREAT job on the sweater! I am contemplating buying the pattern and making this for myself and I hope mine turns out as nice as yours did. Oh, and the view from your back patio is nice, too. 🙂

    Beautiful job on the Lush and Lacy Cardigan. I am about to order the pattern but I wanted to get an idea of the size of yours because when I knit it I am going to make it so the front can be buttoned up by over lapping the two front plackets and in the picture of you it looks like I may have to make the front a little wider. I don’t like to wear my things too tight.
    So I can get an idea, what size is yours and how tall are you and bust size. Thank you very much for your time. And oh yes, Karyn was right — your back patio does look nice! Thanks, Elizabeth
