This was made using the pattern I created using Knitware in the last post. It was knitted on the Silver Reed SK280 using Patons Diploma Gold 4ply. It was supposed to have buttons and buttonholes but I decided to just have plain ribbed bands as the buttons would probably never be fastened anyway. If I have to I’ll sew a couple of press studs on but I don’t really think I’ll need to.
I bought the wool from a local yarn store using some vouchers that Billy bought me for Christmas. I still have another £40 to spend there so I’ll be making another visit shortly. I’m thinking of knitting myself a cardigan in DK but I haven’t decided for definite yet. My only gripe with cardis is that I always have trouble with the bands, I either make them too long, too short, too tight or too loose. I very rarely get them right first time so if I do decide to knit one there will no doubt be much shouting, swearing and temper tantrums. Maybe I’ll surprise myself and get it right first time. We’ll see.
