BGITWWW's Ballet Cardi
#109 Girl's Ballet Cardigan
From Diane Soucy's Knitting Pure and Simple Patterns
Yarn: Blue Skys Dyed Cotton, 3 Skeins in Rasberry
This wrap sweater is knit from the top down. Instructions are written well and easy to understand. I knit a few extra rows of rib at the sleeves for spurt growth.
I do not do well with adding stitches at the underarm and knitting in the round with 3 needles. I must do more. The yarn feels great but it pills fast and furious. I want to use it again but I wont. I just don’t like that pilling! The color is much darker than what I saw on the monitor too. I used 2.5 skeins.
Daughter who knits said I did a fine job. BGITWWW wore it to school and received many compliments. I am sure she said “Thank you, my NANee knit this for me…”
This knit up quickly and I will probably knit another one for Fall.
