It’s funny to knit a cardigan, whilst wearing the same cardigan! This is the Miette Cardigan, which I last knitted three years ago. Yikes! It has proven to be a real trooper. So much so, that I decided to make a second version.
I already know the fitting adjustments this cardigan needs for my body, so I’m hoping this won’t be too challenging a make:
- Lengthen the bodice
- Lower where the bust shaping begins
- Knit a size larger than the pattern tells me
- Increase the width of the button bands
And job’s a good’un. That’s the theory, anyway.
I’m knitting up a storm on my current trip to the Isle of Wight. Y’all know I love this place! It truly is like stepping back in time.
I’ve even found some sewing patterns and various vintage pieces…
I’m on Inspiration Island, for sure. Are you enjoying your creative weekends? I do love when the weekday world hits pause and we can all mutually enjoy rest, inspiration, making and ice-cream!
