Julie's First Cardigan!
Two upcoming patterns and ANOTHER Pattern Giveaway!

Margaux's Flutter-Sleeved Blousy Cardigan!

This version of the #99 Flutter-Sleeved Blousy Lace Cardigan makes me want to knit another one!


Margaux H. from Hoboken, NJ knit this LOVELY version of the cardigan, extending the length (yea for top-down!). It looks so great!

She used Spud & Chloe yarn, 4 balls in Toast.


Here is what she had to say about the pattern:

"So easy to follow, this is a great pattern for any beginner or experience knitter. It always keeps you involved which makes the sweater seem so quick to work on. The pattern walks you through each step of the process, which is so great for a beginner knitter.

Working from the top down is also nice because you can try on the sweater as you go to see if you like the length. I decided to increase the length by about 3 inches. which added about 2 more button holes. I also blogged about it!" -- Margaux

This is a beautiful sweater. Great design, Katharine, and great stitchery, Margaux!


This is stunning! I can't wait to get done with my other projects to try this one!


This is beautiful, what a great job.

Love this cardie. Looks really comfy and is different to what I have seen here in South Australia. I also haven't knitted anything from the top down as yet (and I have been knitting since I was about 10!!!) so I must try it out. I can see it is another pattern for my 'to do' list!!!
Keep up the great work. Your wonderful knitting prowess shows.
