FO: Light as Air

Featherweight Cardigan by Hannah Fettig is such a fun little wear. Not so fun to knit - miles of stockinette with tiny yarn, but a great design. I love versatility of this little cardi!



Some knitters have done some shaping - maybe I will on the next one.

Details: Yarn is Silky Alpaca Lace and I knit it on KP #4 for the body and sleeves, #3 for the ribbing.

Thanks for stopping in and taking a look :-) Happy knitting to you ~

Nice cardigan. How long did it take you to knit? I started this pattern a month ago with a break to knit a baby blanket for a gift....and I'm still knitting the stockinette body. It's slow going.

Thanks Ruth.

I started it in December but was working on Sunrise at the same time. I really had to push myself as it didn't hold my interest. It is a great little cardi and I am glad I persevered.

Looking forward to seeing yours ;-)

Very pretty! I would love to make that one as well, but I am intimidated by all the stockinette on small needles! It looks like the result is worth it, though.

Knittinreed said...

Thanks Mer. Yes, I think it was worth it!

The sweater is lovely, and it looks wonderful on you too. I'm glad you hung in there and finished it. Some things are just worth the extra time and effort, and your little sweater is definitely one of them. :)

Thanks Sandie! I'm glad I did it!

Looks wonderful! How did you keep the edges from drawing up at the corners if you used a smaller needle for the rib? I knit tight and I struggled with this

Hi Anonymous - I used the smaller needle for the rib on the sleeves but did not on the band. And I cast of *very* loosely. Also blocked strongly. HTH.

I read in Google that you had an Ashford Scholar. Do you have a picture of it on your blog? My friend got one like you and fixed it up it is a lot like a Kiwi now

Yes Karen - search the blog and you will find it.
