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.
