The great thing about going on a road trip is having lots of time to knit in the passenger seat. I did so well on my Heartfelt Cardigan last week, I decided it was time for a catch up post to show you my progress.
Two weeks ago I’d done this much of the back…
The back is now finished…
And I’ve done half a sleeve.
I usually knit both sleeves together, but didn’t because I’m knitting from a cone and didn’t want to mess about winding wool off.
When I knit a sweater or cardigan I like to knit both sleeves together after the back and before the front(s), because I think it leaves the easy more exciting bit i.e. the front(s) to the end. Knitting both at once ensures both sleeves are the same and makes it feel as if the knitting goes quicker, so I think knitting one at a time will make it feel as if it’s taking longer.
What order do you knit a sweater/cardigan? And why do you do it that way?
Until next time,
