Last call for summer knits


My summer cardigan is finished just in time to actually be included as a summer knit. It seems as if the summer here is turning into autumn but before I dive completely into the more woolly affairs I just want to show you Cherry.








I might be able to wear it only a couple of times this season but then again – to look at the positive side - it’s ready for next spring. It’s a great pattern and the cardigan turned out pretty much as I anticipated. The yarn was lovely too. It’s not spun very tightly, though, which means that it splits. However, it wasn’t a problem, just something to be aware of. And a good thing is that it results in a very soft garment when knit up.






I found some buttons I like. I wanted them to be red because that way the attention is pointed more towards the lovely pattern, I guess. They do have noticeable details, though.


Pattern: Cherry

Designer: Anna Bell in My Fashionable Life

Yarn: Jo Sharp Soho Summer DK Cotton in the color Carmen

Thanks all!

Ulli, I don't think the buttons are made of real leather, but don't know for sure.

What a beuty!
If you're sad not to wear it - I think it will look preaty with a long sleaved tshirt underneath as well.

Lise said...

Thank you, Karoline. I think you're right and that way I can wear it all year :)

What a lovely sweater! The little cables suit the feminine shape so well, and I love the buttons!
