And then it was done..., cardigans, Hoboken

FO: Fable Cardigan

FableCardi1

Well I've grown a lot in the last couple of months! 

While I've enjoyed knitting the babe a few things I have also been a bit selfish and made a couple of things for myself. I keep hearing that "things will be different" when the baby comes so might as well capitalize on the knititng time.

I have loved this cardigan ever since I saw Kate wearing it at a workshop held at Patricia's Yarns. I remember at the time she didn't have a pattern written but was working on it. Sure enough a few months later there it was on the Kelbourne Blog!

The cardigan is simple but stylish and I can already tell a wardrobe staple. I've already worn it so many times and it doesn't bother me that I can't quite button it up!

The only trouble I came across was pooling. I had to alternate skeins for the first time ever to give it a nice continuity. I even paired certain skeins together using the darkest for the collar.

Pattern Details
Fable Cardigan by Kate Gagnon Osborn
Fibre Co. Terra, colorway Butternut
US 6 & US 8 needles
Buttons from JoAnn's. 

I made the 37" size. 

A helpful note for those who make this, for the collar, I picked up 3 for every 4 rows and was pretty much spot on for the stitch count. 

I really can't believe how close it's getting to Baby H's due date. I really truly cannot wait to meet him!

  1. oh you look beautiful. I’m also expecting my first, but only at 21 weeks. It’s ice to see that you continued to knit for yourself, I just cast on a cardigan for myself too, knowing full well I wont be able to button it up, but I needed a break from baby knitting! Good luck in these coming weeks, get those feet up!!
