My next project is a ribbed cardigan from Rico Design, made with Rico Essentials Merino DK yarn. It’s from the book Rico Knitting Idea 6.
I had started it a few weeks ago, then put it aside to start a pair of socks for a family friend, who has been fighting cancer. Sadly he died last week before I’d finished them. So I picked up the cardigan again this week. The two fronts and half of the back is done. The picture doesn’t show it, but there’s a lovely bit of cabling in the lower back. The cable pattern was charted and I think I followed it correctly, but it doesn’t quite look the same as the pattern book’s picture. I wonder whether they changed it after the picture was taken. Of course, I might just have got it wrong!
