Cobblestone cardigan, really-truly finished!

I sent several hours putting in the pockets this morning, and was wearing it when Dan got home. He took these pictures right then, so it *still* isn’t blocked!

The pockets are nice and deep. They go right down to where the border starts. I’m happy it’s a cold, rainy day, so I can wear it! By the way, this top-down, one-piece sweater was inspired by Jared Flood’s Cobblestone Pullover. Thanks, Jared!

    Hi Thomasean,

    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. :)

    Very nice Kara, the big buttons really finish it off well! Great pictures, too, you are so cute in all your handknit winter wear!
