Estelle Cardi

July 27, 2010




Look familiar? Estelle comes in two versions, pullover and cardigan, now I have both! Same mods as before to make a more fitted sweater: smaller gauge and more decreases at waist. Also added length and more traditional fitted sleeves with 3" of ribbed cuff. I love the buttons in the back. I used 3.75 skeins of Cascade Sierra, 80% pima cotton, 20% merino wool and size 7 needles. Lovely.

Now I will get cracking on my test knit, but slow going with my hand still aching after a bit of knitting. My husband is giving me a hand massage every night, bless him!
