Flower garden cardigan for Darcie
I wanted to make a cardigan for my niece. So I adapted a pattern called Relish by Kim Hargreaves (from Rowan knits). I had knitted the pattern before and it was a great fit so I used the shaping and added a different trim on the sleeves and around the bottom. The yarn I used was the double knit from King Cole in a lovely petrol blue colour (named topaz). I added some little hand embroidered flowers in red as I loved the combination of the red and blue. Here is how it looks...
I am now working on another shawl. It is knitting up really quickly so it should be done for Christmas. Ta ta for now.
