Me n Kat decided to, once again, do a knitted project together, w00t!
This time it was the Marion Cardigan by Andi Satterlund – we are slowly working our way through her patterns, REALLY nice patterns, how can we not?!
Look, we match !!!!! omg exciting. And there is even a baby.
So I made the size M (I think from memory) and it fits pretty well. I didn’t have to go up or down a size as my gauge was fine.
The Marion Cardi has pretty overlapping cables down the middle on each side of the bodice and stops at the waist.
The back is plain but with the variegated Crucci Landscapes yarn it makes it look so much more exciting.
I also doubled the amount of rows of rib because it was weirdly short and in my opinion looked funny.
I actually left about 10 rows off the bottom (before the rib) so that it would sit on my waist as my waist is really high.. I had the problem with my Mryna that it sat slightly below the waist but would bunch up and look weird..
(This is just after I had pulled it down but you can see that it doesn’t sit quite right..)
Aww, close up pic of the cables – my first cable project !!
Ain’t they cool?!
Wasn’t actually that hard to do cables but since they twist and turn, you have to be careful where you’re up to in the actual knitting pattern and in the cables pattern, that got a little confusing at times.
The buttons I chose are plain matt blue, oh my gosh so pretty. (btw I love this cardi!)
There were supposed to be 5 buttons but of course I shortened the length so only 4 which is kinda odd when you stare at it for too long.. please don’t do that.
The Marion is supposed to have 3 quarter sleeves but I lengthened them by so many rows because, warm garments with short sleeves, say what?! LOOK AT HOW LONG THEY ARE NOW, they cover all the way up to my fingies, YaY, warm hands for winter!
I went to put another pic in and.. well.. there are no more 😦
Kat will have some tho, go check out Kat’s Marion!!
