#21 Cardigan by James Coviello
Needles & yarn
US 11 - 8.0 mm
Universal Yarn Deluxe Chunky Tweed
Universal Yarn Eden Silk

And, done. Added seaming binding for wear and tear and to prevent stretching. Also, adds a couture feel to it. Can’t wait for the photo shoot!

2/13 ~ Taking a photo helps to check for accuracy of patterns. Now to complete back, sew her up, and complete finishing touches!

tip: bind off loosely = bind off with next size needle

Tip: Make a second copy of the chart so you can cut and paste according to the directions for the sleeves.

1/20/20 ~ beautiful scalloped edge

VK challenges here on Ravelry, in particular one called ‘Label Lovers’, made me realize I had overlooked James Coviello all these years. Well, no more.

tip: Yarn over can be tricky and is done differently according to what stitch comes before and what stitch comes after your yarn over stitch. Sometimes, you simply lay yarn over the needle, other times you need to wind yarn around needle twice. The constant? Always make sure there is actually yarn over your needle representing that ‘yo’ stitch before proceeding.

Yarn? Was able to find yarn for this here on Ravelry, first yarn I’ve purchased in years and I was able to reduce two people’s yarn stash to boot. I think the fibers are actually smiling at me. FYI ~ the two yarns are held together throughout.
