miriam




Well, my devotion to garter stitch continues in my new pattern, Miriam. Strange how this cardi looks a lot like my December booties, huh? Well, I guess I inspired myself with gray, garter stitch. Heehee.

I fancy this cardi because it is easy to knit and easy to wear. And, it was knit with Kumlien's Gull—a favorite heathers shade of mine.

I have lots of room in my closet for this sweater. I'll be checking my stash after Christmas, or just checking Quince & Co!!

It really is simply beautiful. When my Christmas and early year birthday makings are out of the way, this is on my list.

How much ease to you recomend?

madder said...

It is shown with about 1.5" of negative ease. But, I think zero ease is best. But, plus or minus an inch is fine, too. This sweater seems to allow a little flexibility in the ease department.
Hope that helps.

When you say this pattern is 'easy'...how easy? ;)

I am a novice knitter but LOVE this cardi!!! Garter stitch. Grey. Drool.

I am barely off squares, but hope to get a hat under my belt by next week.

What is the skill level needed for this beautiful pattern?

Thanks.

You need to be able to cast on, work stockinette stitch and garter stitch, decrease, and pick up stitches. If you can do those things (or would like to learn some new skills) you can make this cardigan. Raglan styles are great for beginner knitters.
Oh, and you need to be able to seam the sleeves. Hope you give it a whirl!
