You know what? I think I finished this cardigan, stuck the photo up on Ravelry but neglected to post about it here!

265.365 - slip stitch ridge cardigan

Slipped Stitch Cardigan (which still needs a proper name)

Pattern: my own; forthcoming
Yarn: Cascade 220 Heathers, 6 skeins
Needles: 4mm

Notes: This is a bottom-up, circular yoked cardigan with lots of shaping and a round neck. The knitting was pretty easy, although figuring out how to decrease for the yoke took a but of doing!

I’m working on the pattern now – it’s all written, but needs to be edited and formatted, and I need some new photos too! So I’m hoping to have it up in a few weeks.

I’m almost done a new project that’s been on my needles for awhile but has been resisting completion – I’ve had to rip and reknit portions several times! I think I’m almost there though.

Koigu and garter stitch. Is there anything better?

    Just gorgeous! Very sleek and well-tailored. I could definitely use a cardigan like that to keep me warm in an over-air-conditioned office! Looking forward to the pattern. : )
