Another Baby…

by Kate on March 30, 2011

means another cardi, this time in a charcoal by Zarina.

Cosy Cardigan

I held two strands together which has given the cardi some extra thickness, made a small adjustment to the collar and finished it off with some Liberty buttons.

Love this cardigan. I liked the pale grey and blue ones but I think I love this een more. It makes me want to get better at crochet!

And just out of interest – how long (roughly) does it take to make this for someone who is good at crochet?

Thanks Ruth. I find this little cardi takes a 3-4 evenings.

Oh. My. God. Have been unable to get computer time all day (the parentals were down visiting) and look what I missed! Where to start … perfect PERFECT colour and the buttons … be still my beating heart!! And I see through flicking back to the others what you mean about the extra bulk and you know what that equals? Extra AWESOMENESS baby! You rock.

Lovely. Which pattern did you use?

p.s. I can’t subscribe to replies to this comment… I’m going to do my best to remember to come back to check for an answer – just wondering, if you don’t reply by email, could you get a “subscribe to replies” button? I comment on a lot of posts and never remember to go back to those that don’t email replies. Thanks!
