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 the 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!
