Mango Cardigan (DONE!)

March 21, 2007

final mango cardigan

Finally, I got this cardigan done this noon.

I love it, although the size is a bit bigger, and not suitable for new born baby, but I am sure that one day my baby can wear this out.

In this pattern, I learned two new things:

1) Decreasing evenly across a row.

2) Grafting (body stitches and sleeves stitches)

I had posted the information about the 1st one (decreasing evenly across a row).

Now, I would love to share how to graft the stitches in my next article.
This is the picture showing where I stopped on knitting the yoke (last night).yoke section

After finishing the yoke section, it’s time to graft body and sleeve sts from holders tog at underarms.

Then, sew the sleeve seams.

picking up stitches

Finally, picking up the stitches on the front left/right for knitting the button band and buttonhole band; bind off the sts, and sew on buttons and weave in loose ends.

Cheers!

Wow, it’s lovely! If you made this in bigger size, you can wear a set “mother like daughter” to show off! Congratulations and keep up the good work!
