I finally finished knitting my very first cardigan sweater! I started at the beginning of the year worked on it periodically. If I had knitted consistently, I think I could have finished it in less than 10 weeks. I’m still quite a slow knitter though, so if you are experienced, I’m sure you’ll finish this project very quickly.
The Knitting Pattern
I was looking for a knitting pattern similar to the ACNE Lesley cardigan. The cardigan knitting pattern I chose is the Ladies Slip Stitch Cardigan – 8 ply from Bendigo Woollen Mills. The slip stitch knits up extremely fast and creates the vertical lines on the garment. I found the hardest part was not knitting, but sewing all the pieces together at the end!
アクネのカーディガンに似ている編み図が欲しくて、ようやくLadies Slip Stitch Cardigan – 8 ply from Bendigo Woollen Millsを見つけました。スリップステッチが縞模様になります。編むより最後に縫い合わせるのが一番大変でした。
This yarn is also from Bendigo Woollen Mills. I picked a wool and mohair blend in 8 ply to imitate the fluffy feel of the ACNE cardigan I liked.
毛糸も同じく Bendigo Woollen Mills の物です。モヘアとウールがモコモコといい感じ、と思いました。
If I can do it, you can too! I am by no means an experienced or remotely skilled knitter. With the help of YouTube and lots and lots of patience, this is a great knitting pattern for those of you who are ready to graduate from knitting scarves.
