At last, pictures of my Fabulous Stripy Cardi. The pattern is Mon Petit Gilet Raye by Isabelle Milleret, the yarn, Drops Alpaca and the stripes, Drops Delight.
This cardi was started in *Ahem* March 2014 and finished in May 2016. It was started, altered and ripped back, thrown in the naughty corner and finally pulled out and finished.
As the weather has got chillier I wore it the other evening and realised I hadn't shown it off yet. Both the yarns are wonderfully soft and cosy warm and I am loving wearing it.
I made mine longer than the pattern and added extra increases to the yolk which upon reflection, I don't think I'll do again.
I sewed in a piece of stabilising velvet ribbon in the back of the neck to stop it pulling down too much.I've just cast another on, this time in blues and grey. Should be a quicker job this time but could be famous last words!
Have a fun week............Clicky Needles
