Fair Enough Progress Report

Posted by on Feb 23, 2012 in Customer Knitting | No Comments

Lindsay has been teaching her Fair Enough Cardigan class and her students are almost finished.

Here is how Wendy Bernard (pattern designer)  describes this sweater : Fair Enough features just enough fair isle color work to keep things interesting but it won’t overpower your knit with too much fuss….Knit in one piece from the bottom up a la the typical round yoke sweater format many of you have knit before, you’ll knit and purl and use just a little bit of fair isle patterning using two colors at one time. The body is knit in one piece up to the armpits, then the two sleeves are knit in the round from the bottom up. When they’re complete, you’ll join the sleeves to the body and work even yoke decreases up to the neck. Buttonhole and button bands are added last, then all you have to do is weave in your ends, choose some snazzy buttons, throw on your new sweater and get down with your bad self.

 

 

Sue is making her sweater out of O-wool Balance, a 50/50 blend of organic cotton and wool.  Beautiful!  All she has left is the button band.  She has picked out perfect buttons that reflect the pale yellow and blue.

Carol is making hers out of Spud and Chloe Sweater, which she loves.  We warned her that black is beautiful, but really hard to knit.  She obviously is having no trouble at all.  Gorgeous!
