It was like the old days - we had a blast! I wanted to show you my three long cardigans – if you`ve lost track, I did Pocket Change first [https://knitwords.blogspot.ca/2018/03/silver-lining.html] – it is lace carriage in brown 4 ply wool.
Then Ozark, [https://knitwords.blogspot.ca/2018/03/the-moment-of-truth.html] also 4 ply wool stockinette and finally Lipstick
and Smoke in Cotton Tale 8, 4 ply cotton stockinette.
The shape of the
garment basically is the same in all three but Ozark is shaped/decreased from hem to the waist and the other two
are A-line, shaped from hem to underarm.
All three have 8 rows of shortrows to
even out the hemline so it does not look shorter at the centre front and back –
I love all three!
And I’m taking Lipstick and Smoke to Ireland with me – we’re leaving this weekend – it will be my
travel wear – I always like something cuddly and cozy for a long flight – it will
be perfect for that and I’m sure Dublin and Killarney evenings will be cool
enough that I will get plenty of use out of it!
