Tart tatin

Project info
Pomme de pin Cardigan by Amy Christoffers
39 '' with changes
Needles & yarn
madelinetosh tosh dk - nutmeg
45 yards in stash
3.8 skeins = 854.8 yards (781.7 meters)
Laine Et Tricot in La Chapelle sur Erdre, Pays de la Loire

(because this color reminds me of the glazed apples on a tart tatin)

This project had a bit of a rocky start:

  • I first CO the smallest size but was halfway through the ribbing when I realised it would turn out too tight.

  • So decided to start again, CO for the 39’’ size and was finished with the ribbing when I realised that I had 10 less stitches than I should. Decided to go ahead anyway, and I basically took 10 stitches from the back portion

Madtosh DK always grows a bit lengthwise after blocking (at least in my experience) so I knit 15.5’’ inches for the body, which blocked to 18’’. The same for the sleeves, I knit 16’’ which blocked to 19’’ or so.

Started the v-neck decreases at 14’’ from CO, decreasing 1 stitch on each side every other row, until I had 14 stitches on each front side (to match the 14 stitches on each side of the back).
For the sleeves I followed the directions for the smallest size.
