… carré cardigan pattern …

My carré cardigan is finished.

Again an unusual construction, in one piece and nearly completely seamless (only a little sewing at the wrong side for the pockets). It is worked top down, starting with a provisional cast on at the top of the center section. All waist shaping is done in this center stockinette section.

The large bands are worked all around – hence the name carré (square) – and hide 2 pockets.I used 3 (or more?) circular needles to work them.

The sleeve inset is based on the contiguous sleeve method developed by Susie Myers, SusieM on Ravelry (http://www.ravelry.com/people/SusieM)

… carre chocolat …

A long time I didn’t post anything on here.

I’m working on several projects. So soon you will hear from me again.

My first project = carré cardigan. Sweet as chocolate. (and warm 🙂

All shaping is done in the center part. Broken rib bands are worked all around, shaping the shoulder line and hiding 2 pockets.

The yarn I used is Cascade Heathers in a lovely color: chocolate brown, prune, nearly black.
