Patsy - A New Cardi

It must be all of a few weeks since I finished my last cardi - time for a new one.

I've decided to go for another Kim Hargreaves pattern - from the book Touching Elegance.

The pattern is called Patsy.

I'll be making adjustments to the sleeves - full length and more fitted.  I'm knitting it in Sirdar Balmoral DK yarn, it's not as pinky as this picture would lead you to believe, more of a burgundy colour.

Having knitted enough of Kim's patterns I feel confident about the sizing.  However with this one I started knitting the XS size, but quickly frogged it and knitted up the S size instead.  It still looks like it could be quite a tight fit.  It's knitting up quickly as it is straight forward to knit - so I'll soon know if it will fit!


  1. It does look quite pink - I look forward to seeing it :)

  2. It is gorgeous, I bet you will be done with it in no time at all. Good luck,
