FO: Katarina Cardigan

I’m studying at home today (2 weeks till my exams!) and since it is a really miserable wet day here in London, I wanted to wear something snuggly. What better than my new Katarina cardigan?

This brooch doesn’t sit very well with it so I’ll need to get myself a proper shawl pin but it works well enough for taking pictures.

I’ll probably usually wear it open like in this picture but it is nice to know that it can look a bit dressier.

Finally, a silly action shot that was supposed to show off the shape of the sleeves better. I’m not sure it does at this size but you can see a larger version by clicking on it.

Some notes:

  • RYC Cashcotton sheds. It is great yarn to work with and knits into a beautiful soft, warm fabric but it’s nearly as bad as having a dog in the house for leaving hair everywhere. This also means that if you have sensitive sinuses, you might find this an uncomfortable yarn to knit or even wear.
  • The shawl collar needs a really stretchy cast-off method in order to sit nicely. I don’t have any recommendations because I think I’m going to go back and re-do mine.
  • If you are going to extend the length of the sleeves, you need to keep doing the increases. Otherwise, they end up with a slightly dented bell-shape.
