Hello! I finally finished the Washington Square Cardigan from Metropolitan Knits that I started this summer. I’m really happy with how it turned out, despite the blasé look on my face. I’m really jumping up and down inside! :)
This sweater held a lot of “firsts” for me: following a chart, knitting a button band and button holes, a tubular cast off for the collar, plus a little fudging to make up for a not-quite-perfect gauge. It’s by no means perfect but it was a great learning experience and I do love this style. And this baby is WARM. Just what I needed.
The jury is still out on the buttons. The designer used contrast buttons on her sample in the book, which I really liked. My buttons came from a thrifted sweater that I felted, so I just had them in my stash. If you want more details about my cardi, you can visit my Ravelry page. All in all, I recommend this sweater pattern! The instructions were very clear, I learned a ton and I will wear this sweater like crazy!
What are you knitting these days?
