cardi

A cardigan I finished sometime ago. Simple and cheap 2 ply wool yarn bought at  Tampere Art and Craft center during our job trip to Finland (We looked at finnish landrace horses and cows and it was very cold. Oh and yes, I went to Moominvalley :)

One-piece, seamless, very easy-going pattern –  Yellow Wall by Judy Brien on Ravelry.

While knitting I had a suspicion it would turn out quite oversized, and it did, but I decided to try to felt it a bit in hot soapy water. First tried on a little sample and then on a whole sweater and quite happy with the result – it all feels smoother and warmer, it somehow worked well for this particular yarn. (And it is exactly  my size!)

 

favourite bracelet, custom-made by a jewellery-maker-photographer friend Elena Erda.

    That´s a really nice pattern, I just downloaded it, thanks for the link.
    All you wear looks great together, not only the cardigan and the bracelet, also the tunic, is it a Sjödén model ?

      Thank you, Maliz! Hope the pattern will behave necely for you too! I find this sweater suits for “layering” sort of outfit, and yes, the tunic is G. Sjödén, I wear it a lot, like the color and the quality.

    I’m glad the felting worked out. I’m tempted to try that with a sweater I made for my husband. How long did you put yours in the machine? Just curious for comparison.
