Moorland Cardigan

I finished this one sometime between Thanksgiving and Christmas. I saw a picture of a sweater in this color blue, and had to have one for myself.

It is knit with two strands of DK weight yarn held together, on size 10 needles. I know it is kind of boring and basic, but I think that is the kind of clothing I like best.

It does run small. I knit the 39" which was the smallest size and I wish I had knit the next size up. Considering I usually make sweaters for me in a size 36" I thought this would have some positive ease and be a little larger on me.

I also ran out of yarn, so I wasn't able to do long sleeves or pockets.
I used Elsebeth Lavold's silky wool. This is by far my favorite yarn. It has a lovely drape, and it never pills! I knit my Lady Sweater out of the same yarn, a year and a half ago, and it still looks brand new.




The Details:
Yarn: Elsebeth Lavold, silky wool, 8 skeins, holding two strands of yarn together.
Mods: No pockets, and sleeve tabs with buttons.
Size: 39"

Basic doesn't have to be boring, especially when you have a beautiful blue like that!

Becky said...

You knit so fast. How do you get it all done so fast? I am so impressed with how fast you get stuff done and how beautiful your work is!

Another stunning creation!! I need to knit something in a similar blue, it looks so nice with a pair of jeans and a white T. Thanks again for sharing!

That is lovely - great color! As for Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool, I totally agree - I made Wendy Bernard's Slinky Ribs with it and it looks fantastic a year later with lots of wearing.

Katie, I love this one even more than your last one, but I am quite partial to Elsebeth Lavold silky wool. That blue is really pretty!

Lovely sweaters! But I have to ask, where did you get those fantastic harness boots? They are gorgeous.

Well the style may be basic, but the color is anything but boring. Gorgeous!!! I love seeing your hand knits - it inspires me to get my always-in-process sweater out and work on it again. :)

Hilary said...

Oh, COOL! What a great sweater and a lovely shade of blue. I don't think it is boring at all...the sleeve cuffs with button tabs are very neat. And the sweater is styled impeccably, as usual!
