The Cardigan (hopefully ready by Christmas 2018)


New update! December 8th, 2018

Original post July 8th, 2018

Here you can follow up on my progress with this particular project that I also mentioned in my earlier post ‘The Curious Thing About Hobbies’. A blue and dark grey cardigan for a gentleman in his sixties. I started with this cardigan in February 2018. It is an order made by one of my pub regulars.

Christmas 2018 is nigh and the pressure to meet the deadline is becoming more intense.

I do however come with good news:

The back is done and I am intensely working on the sleeves right now.

The Cardigan - Back

A few months ago I decided on unravelling everything I had.

The Cardigan - A new start

I found this great pattern for a man’s knit jacket (Cedric) on DROPS Design and came to the conclusion that with a few minor adjustments, this would be the perfect fit.

There is not much time left, but I am trying my hardest to make it in time without cutting corners! (Quality is still the highest priority)

Wish me luck everyone!

unravelling

As you can see, this might still take a while, as I just recently discovered that some of the knits came off.

Now I have to make a decision.

Will I try to save this creation or write it off as a failure and start over completely?

I will keep updating this post as I move along.
