Cropped Cardi Finished

Well it only took just over a week but I've finished my mohair cropped cardi. 

The pattern is from Designer Knitting magazine S/S10.  The pattern is for three-quarter length sleeves but I didn't have enough yarn for this so settled for short sleeves instead.  I must say I'm very happy with the short sleeves I think they work well on the cardi. 

The pattern calls for worsted weight yarn but I used 4 ply mohair used double throughout.  I used Patons UK Misty which comes in 25g balls - using a total of 7 balls. 

Nice and quick to knit with an interesting pattern - it will make a lovely cover up for the summer evenings.


  1. That's lovely and really quick to be finished in a week, wish I was that fast a knitter! I'm a fan of three quarter sleeves on cardi's, might have to track down the pattern :-)
