I’m very excited to be test knitting this cardigan for Anna Johanna and to be using some local yarn for the test knit.

The color of the yarn is hard to capture in photos. It’s more of a brown than a yellow.


Currently making slow but steady progress on the body of the cardigan.

I realized I used a darker skein for the top back than the fronts, so as I am knitting the body, I am using lighter skeins for each front and switching to a dark skein for the back.


48 sts per ribbing on each arm
Ktbl, ptbl for 5”


Finished knitting on Friday, blocked over the weekend. I hope to take modeled pictures this week.


All done! Overall, I’m really proud of myself for completing this rather complicated cable pattern. Long rows of knitting while managing 3 cable charts at once was a bit dizzying, but I made it through with only some minor mishaps, haha. In hindsight, I probably should have made the M size for a longer sleeve, but I’m really happy with how this cardigan turned out after blocking. It fits fine enough on me, I think.
