Just finished my Patti Cardigan - hooray.

Anyways, a little bit about the project:

The pattern is "Patti" from Rowan Studio 1 and is written and designed by Sarah Hatton. The pattern is supposed to be 3/4 length sleeved, but mine is full length sleeved. This wasn't done on purpose - for some reason, my sleeve length just ballooned even though my gauge was correct (if not a little smaller!!!)

I knitted it in the required yarn, Rowan Felted Tweed in a teal colourway as I got inspiration from another craftster's finished object.

The project required 8 balls of yarn, and I used 7.5 for the knitting and almost all of the rest for seaming (had to reseam about 6 times because of the sleeve sizing issue)

The pattern is very easy to knit and I would highly recommend it to people who are still starting out as it only requires garter stitch and stockinette stitch.

The bottom half takes a little longer to knit because you have to knit double the amount of stitches from the pleats, but all in all, it took me about 1 month to make.

I knitted this in the smallest size, for a size 32-34. However, I had to make modifications at my seaming stage because it was too big for me (i'm a 32). I took in the sleeves by about 6 stitches from each edge, and set the sleeves about 6 stitches in from where it should have been set. I think that the "small" is better suited for the 34.

I LOVE this!!  When I first saw the photo, I thought it was a sewn garment.  It is so great.  I definitely have to make this.  Thanks for sharing.  It is wonderful.

Like rorosity, I also thought it was a cloth garment at first.  Love the design, yarn & colour and it looks great on you.

That's super cute! I really like it - the colour, the shape, everything, and it looks great on you.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

That's absolutely gorgeous. It looks professionally done. I've been knitting for years and most of my stuff still winds up looking like i knit it myself. Beautiful work!
