91  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Austen-esque cardigan - with pattern! on: June 20, 2006 03:21:42 AM
wow, thanks guys!  i was really happy with this, because i tend to make up stuff as i go along, and a lot of the time end up not liking it in the end, so it just gets stuffed somewhere to be frogged later, so I don't post them or write up a pattern. 

aunt carrot - i don't think i'll be writing up a pattern for the Improvised cardigan, but if you know how to knit a raglan sweater I can explain it to you. You would prolly have to make it in a thinner yarn anyway....i made that with Gedrifa big point, on size 15 needles. Nice n fast, but now I don't wear it because it feels like I'm wearing a teddy bear costume.

it's basic raglan sweater but with on front wider than the other. so instead of having the same number of stiches for each front piece, you would have the right side be about 1/3 wider than the left. the yarn for the ruffle is much thinner, and i just picked up stiches along the entire edge, and knit a normal ruffle, ie knit a row, next row knit into front and back of every stitch to increase, and then those 2 rows again. then just knit until the ruffle is long enough. if you don't want to pick up all those stitches, you can knit the ruffle on it's own and sew it on.  hmmm, what else?  oh, i knit an extra long ribbed cuff for the sleeve and just folded it over. nothing special, just purl2, knit2. there are button loops sewn just under the ruffle, and 7 buttons, i think.   if you have any questions, let me know!

it's hard to tell with the variegated yarn...did you add a border to it to sew the zipper to?  just wondering.

it turned out really nicely and is a lovely colour.  great job!

hey folks!

I'm not really new, but never posted much before and thought it might be good to change my user name to match my blog since I'm planning on making a habit of writing up patterns for the stuff I knit.  That way anyone who's looking will know where to find me.

Anyway, I knit up this Regency style cardigan for Knit the Classics http://knittheclassics.blogspot.com/ because we were reading Pride and Prejudice.  I really like the way it turned out and thought it would make a fun summer pattern. This is an easy intro to lace for those who haven't tried, and has a simple shape so it's fun and easy!

let me know what you think, or if you need help   Cheesy
