WIP: Grapevine Cardigan
Ok, so I've been working on this for a couple months now...

I had actually found this sweater (cardigan) on a thread here, checked it out, fell in love with it, and decided I HAD to do it (but not in the same color scheme as the original).

So, I've put it onto the back burner for the past month for some other, newer projects, but now I'm back!!

The link is:
http://geocities.com/jaslamb/grapevinecardigan.htm
the designer is Judy Lamb.

When I first swatched each of the pattern designs, I did notice that there were a few mistakes. I contacted the designer for the corrections, and after waiting over a week, decided to test out my own corrections. I then emailed the designer again, advising of my corrections.

So, anyway.... I'm at the point where I have to decide how long I"m going to make this sweater....

(there was NO gauge or sweater sizing for this.... so I'm hoping that I'm doing ok with my own measuring as I'm knitting...)

anyway.... here is my progress....

back:

front right:


The pattern consists of a mock cable, then a "grapevine" on each side, then alternating crossed cables, moss st, and mock cables.

I'll update in this thread as I progress.

I really like the pattern design! What kind of yarn are you using? It looks very soft.

Now that is really very pretty! I bet it takes a fair bit of concentration too! Not your average boring knit, this sweater. I look forward to seeing the FO on this one.

I'm using Bernat Satin in sable. It is really, really soft.

The pattern is quite easy once you get the hang of the different patterns within each row.... but... yes, you really do need to concentrate on what you are doing.... (also, I wrote the entire thing out, row by row..... ugg)





I actually just went to longer cable needles, and was able to take a pic of the WIP on....

Love the cardigan -- Bernat Satin is one of my favorites to work with & I love the color, too.

The designer did email me back (after I had figured out the corrections for myself). I ended up advising her of the corrections, and I'm pretty sure she's corrected them in her pattern (if anyone out there is interested).

This WIP is going very slowly, only because I'm in 'home renovations' mode and have been doing an enormous amount of work around the house!

I'll post another pic next week! (hopefully I'll be almost at the underarm by then!)
