Pattern: Shalom Cardigan by Involving the Senses
Wool: Moda Vera Shiver colour no. 24
Needles: size 11

This cardigan is the second of the knitting challenges that I set for myself. Since I am always knitting scarves and berets I thought it would be a nice challenge to make a larger project.

The wool used is quite bulky and on the large needles it knits up quite fast so it eased me into the larger project arena.

The buttons are from Spotlight.

It is quite long. I am 170cm and it comes down over my hips so someone shorter might need to leave out a few rows to make it not so long.

I really like the yoke detail.

All in all this was a very quick and easy knit and I would recommend it to anyone wanting a nice easy project.

Comments and Criticism welcome!

This was such a quick and easy knit. It took my a week to make and that was between work and uni.  I would definately recommend trying it out.

Totally love that yoke.  Very nicely done, and beautiful yarn choice.

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.
