Delphine - Finished

At the start of the year, I seemed to have lost my enthusiasm for cardigan knitting!  Usually I have a number of cardigan projects on the go - with numerous others on the wish list.  But January and February saw a lack lustre attitude to cardigan patterns - a seriously worrying trend.

Thankfully, I have now recovered from this temporary situation.  Hot off the needles is Delphine.

This is a Kim Hargreaves pattern from the book Winter Blooms.  It is a fitted cardigan, with cabled panels in between double moss stitch panels.  It has a curved peplum with a lovely nipped in waist and buttoned detailed on the wrists.

I used Sirdar Balmoral double knitting yarn in the shade 'school grey'.  Sadly this yarn is now discontinued.

The only modification I made to the pattern was to alter the neckline.  The original pattern has a round neckline but I felt that a small collar would suit the style better.

As with all Kim Hargreaves designs, the styling and fit are perfect.
Full details of this project can be seen on my Ravlery page, here.

And so, onwards and upwards - bring on the next cardigan pattern!

  4. Don't you look elegant. "Knitted cardigan" does not do justice to your beautiful, I think I will say cable wool jacket.

  5. Wow, wow and wow ... you are a master knitter. Just beautiful.

  6. Long time lurker here....I always admire your work, but this looks really great on you. Not to mention that it's a lovely sweater and you did a great job on it. I really like the way it fits; it's truly lovely.
