Posted yesterday, received today so I can show and tell…
The chunky cardi is off my needles and away 😃 I have actually made 2 of these for N’s daughters. Sadly one of the girls had a bit of a wait for her’s but I finished it on Saturday, blocked Sunday and posted yesterday🎁
I bought some better hangers for Show and Tell purposes but N and B have squirreled them away for their own outfits – BOYS! So I had to make do with one that the dry-cleaning came back on 😣 It doesn’t hang that well🤔
The pattern came from Let’s Knit and is made using Stylecraft chunky, parchment. The pattern is worked over 10 rows:
Rows 1-3 Knit, rows 4, 6, 8, 10 k2, p5, rows 5, 7, 9 Knit
The nice thing about chunky knits is they knit up quickly although as I was nearing the end not quickly enough. And then there was the issue of buttons!!! Happily I bought enough when my local wool shop was open between lockdown 2 and 3!!!
Celebration time, all ready for packing up and posting 🎈🎈🎈
A couple more items to finish and then the Christmas knitting is all done and then I can fill my head with something new 😄 But my knitting basket looks almost empty now the chunky cardi has gone😉
