Knitting a Cardigan and Jumper

Jumper and Cardigan

After making two cardigans and a sweater from scrap yarns I asked my two daughters if they would they like me to knit them a woollen.  Fiona said yes please either an off the shoulder cream chunky or a black Chenille and Michelle said yes too and chose blue colour.  It was an easy choice as I found this pattern ideal! a cream chunky off the shoulder, quick to knit on 12mm needles. Then I found a stripy cardigan pattern using blue throughout with a moss stitch ribbing.

I have made the back and fronts of the cardigan, still have the rib around neck and fronts which I hope will knit up nice and neat, and the sleeves. And the back and front, both alike, of the jumper and sleeve.

Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos I knitted this cream jumper with two strands of chunky knit and thought that would be thick enough but I think it could do with a thicker yarn and may have to start again. I dont really mind as it is very quick to knit.  photo dc1a81a46bf0e76dc27e68af766e0cd8_zpsc815a6ca.jpg

  1. Goodness - you are knitting fast! These are both looking great :) Thank you for linking up with Wool on Sundays :)

  2. Lucky daughters. What a shame you are going to start again, but then you do have lightning fast knitting fingers! Love the blue cardie, such a pretty colour.

  3. They are both going to be beautiful! I especially love the off-the-shoulder pattern - gorgeous.

    Thank you for the link to the 'no-reply blogger' link, by the way. I have followed the instructions to sort it out. Had never heard of it before.

  4. I love the knitting part, but don't like sewing my pieces together. Your knitting is lovely
