Another Vintage Knitting Project
This is my third attempt at knitting a vintage cardigan and I think I am gradually improving!! I've actually worn this one a lot, it fits better than any of the others and is a pretty straightforward style to wear. Again the pattern was a download from www.thevintageknittinglady.co.uk I love this site, so much choice and very quick to get the downloaded pattern. (please excuse my scribblings on the pattern in the photo) I also liked the pattern because it uses an Aran or light chunky wool which meant it would knit quicker. The thing that drives me mad about knitting is that I'm not very quick at it and thicker wool means quicker end result! The wool was just a basic Aran weight 80/20 acrylic/wool mix and I managed to make it from 400g too.
I thought that the rib was just a basic k1, p1 but it wasn't. It was a k1 tbl (knit one through back loop) p1 row below. I could manage the knit 1 through back loop but it took me ages to get the hang of p1 row below. Good old Youtube comes in very handy when you're not too sure what you're doing. Once I'd got the hang of it it progressed really quickly and looks lovely and chunky.
