Purple cardigan

The purple cable knit jumper was too much for me. I got up to the armpit and realised I’d cast on the wrong number of stitches so unravelled, again. Heartbreaking. It was definitely time to give that pattern a rest.

So I gave up on knitting for a while. Then I discovered ‘Craftsy’ and this really easy knitted cardigan pattern appeared. It’s called’ ‘Ramona‘ by The Brown Stitch. I have been working on this for a month or so, and I’m pretty happy with how it’s coming along so far.

Here’s┬áthe cardi today, being measured for length next to another purple cardigan. Can you guess my favourite colour?

I think I can get cracking on the ribbing and then get started on the arms. They’re knitted in the round, so hopefully I can master this technique and have a new cardigan by September. Hurray!
