Tops, Tanks and Tees Knit Along
I'm taking part in Luvinthemommyhood's knit along this time around. It is a tops, tanks and tees knit along so if you are making or planning on making yourself a top, a tank or a tee then come and join in!
The knit along is running until May 23rd, after which there will be a giveaway!
I'm making this cardigan except I'm making it long sleeved and I have started at the ribbing under the bust to make it a short cardigan. According to my gauge, I am using 5.5mm needles for the ribbing and 6mm for the rest. I cast on using the long tail cast on method as this gives the edge more stretch.
Unfortunately, I was away for the cast on date so I started a week late. I cast on last Wednesday night and so far I am about half way up the back. I LOVE this pattern, it is turning out so cute! Especially in the colour I picked which is a soft, turquoisey / tealy blue. I love this colour at the minute!
