Ruffle Cardigan


i'm so happy with how fast this cardigan went, and how it turned out, in spite of all my indecision and totally knitting by the seat of my pants! so i have to post more pictures, of course.

it's not technically completely done, because i still haven't finished putting buttons on it, but i will post a pic of me wearing it tomorrow, in all its purple ruffled glory! i'm fastening the buttons with little loops that i'm sewing on the inside edge of the ruffle, so when they're done up, you won't see them at all. the sweater fits snugly, and feels very cuddly and warm, i really like it! the only thing that might be missing is some kind of embellishment somewhere on the front. that whole ruffle-less side looks kinda lonely. i was thinking of maybe embroidering something with the yarn from the ruffle, but i'm not sure what. i played with the yarn a bit to see how it would look with a flower, but i'm not sure it looks right. i guess i'll just have to bug the folks at KR for the billionth time and see what they think.

    This looks really cute! Did the ruffle take forever as I've heard? (It doesn't look like I'm going to hit the ruffle on my adrienne vittadini cover cardi any time soon, in any case...)

    the ruffle went pretty quickly, but i was using a boucle yarn on 5.5mm needles (us 9), so even with the increases, it was probably only as many stitches as when you knit a sweater in the round. finer yarn would definitely take a bit longer.
