cobblestone cardigan photo

Well, I wanted to wait until it was blocked, but I can’t :) So here it is, looking a bit wobbly, on my dress form this dark and rainy morning:

I’ll probably add afterthought pockets today, and I’ll block it tomorrow, maybe. When it’s dry, Dan will take photos of me actually wearing it!

    Thanks, Thomasean, glad you like it! :) I based this sweater on Jared Flood’s Cobblestone Pullover, which was a pattern in the Fall 2007 issue of Interweave Knits. Photos of the original are here: http://flickr.com/photos/68971937@N00/871051258/

    I used a different yarn at a different gauge, and worked from the top down in one piece, adding buttonholes every 12 ridges as I went and knitting to fit myself. I also added a round collar instead of the original rolled edge, and made it a lot longer to be more coat-like. I increased a few times on either side of the side-columns of garter stitch to give more room in the hips. I didn’t write anything down, so all I can give you are these general guidelines. Good luck, and let’s see photos of YOUR interpretation of Jared’s lovely sweater!

    Get yourself a copy of Knitting From the Top, by Barbara Walker. She’ll help you understand how to create a seamless sweater from the top down. :)
