For the Third Time

As I mentioned in my previous post, I have just completed a new cardigan.  I say "new" but I have knitted this pattern twice before and the yarn was frogged from an older cardigan.  

Here it is.

The pattern is called Peace and it's by Kim Hargreaves.  I love this pattern.

It has a great fit, it looks flattering and it's amazingly quick to knit.  I actually only took a week and a half to knit it, and that was not full time.

Here are my previous versions.

Made in 2010

Made in 2012

The yarn was frogged from this cardigan.  I wore it so much when it was new, but over the years, I've worn it less and less.  The yarn was still excellent, no bobbling, so it made sense to reknit it.  It feels like something for free when you re-use frogged yarn.  So I'm glad I can get plenty more wear from this yarn in its new form.

You can see full details of this project over on Ravelry, here.  

The heatwave seems to have ended here, it's heavy rain outside as I type this, perfect cardigan weather!


  1. Beautiful cardigan I love the colour. We are still basking in the sun, we had a short downpour at lunchtime but it was over very quickly.

  2. It's pouring down here too and decidedly chilly. I do like that cardigan it has a lovely shape and it fits you perfectly, I wish that I had the patience to knit myself a cardigan, I started one last year got it half done and it's now languishing in the basket I will finish it one day. :)
