Grey Celia

I've just finished another cardigan.

This one is knitted up from my Celia pattern, which I designed last year, but this time I have knitted it using Jamieson & Smith 2 ply jumper weight wool.

I love the cropped style of his cardigan.  I wear mostly dresses and skirts and so I prefer a shorter length for my cardigans.  Also I like a fitted style but one that is easy to wear.  When I designed the Celia pattern this was my criteria and I think the Celia cardigan is just perfect for what I want - which is why I have knitted this second version.

The Jamieson & Smith wool gives a slightly different gauge to the yarn I originally used, so I reduced the number of stitches picked up for the neckline and slimmed the sleeve head down a touch.

I know that this cardigan will be worn so much over the coming summer months.  It's the perfect cover up for a cooler day but looks stylish enough to be worn in the evening as well.

As I plan and design cardigans, I like to tweak them to get the cardigan to be the perfect fit - I think with this pattern I've found my ideal.  I shall have to knit some more in a variety of shades and then I'll never be short of the right cardigan to wear.

Full details of this project can be found on my Ravelry page, here.
