Purple Points Cardigan

Here is the final picture!

AFrogging We Shall Go! - Sleeves - Ball 3

So, I have finished the back of the cardigan, but I forgot to get a picture before placing the stitches on a stitch holder. That pic will have to wait. I've started the sleeves, and this is how far I have gotten with one ball of the Suri Merino.

The gray yarn is Blue Sky Alpacas' Sport-Medium Gray.

AFrogging We Shall Go! - Ball 1

So I finally picked up a sweater that I had given up almost two years ago. I had gotten the back done, and almost one of the front sections done when sis Erin pointed out that it looked awfully big and, "Are you sure you did your gauge swatch right?" "" I hadn't. I was using size 9's when I should have been using 5's.

I was too depressed to rip it all out at one time, so I am frogging as I go, thus the new name for this cardi!

It's the Dollar and a Half Cardigan designed by Veronik Avery and published in Interweave Knits Spring 2007 issue. You can now purchase a PDF copy of the pattern through Interweave Press' website.

Here are two previous posts pertaining to this cardigan:

And here's how far I've gotten with one hank of the Blue Sky Alpaca Suri Merino.
