I had a bit of an accident with one of my daughters favourite cushions and I shrank it! I couldn’t throw it away so I made this little cushion cover with it.

Vintage Style Cable Cardigan

11 Aug

I have just finished knitting this three quarter sleeve vintage style cardigan. I t has a small amount of  cable knitting up each front panel so it wasn’t too difficult. I used a pattern from my favourite knitting book  ‘Vintage Modern Knits’, it is the third garment that I have knitted from it! The wool is from the massive pile that I brought back from Wonderwool as I mentioned earlier in my blog.
