This week has been about the Featherweight Cardigan. I managed to knit through ball #1 of the Malabrigo Lace and had to wind up ball #2. On the body I’m 9.5″ from the armhole and I plan to go about 11″ before beginning the ribbing.
I have been looking at other projects for ideas on the ribbing and the collar. I know that I do not want to do just plain 2×2 ribbing along the edges.
Here’s what I have so far: (these are all Ravelry links by the way!)
- Bead Stitch collar and Farrow Ribbing edges
- Checker Stitch Collar
- Lacey ribbing
- Seed Stitch Collar
- Lace Triangles
- Vertical Ribbing
All of these projects really show how versatile this cardigan really is. I even picked up Nicky Epstein’s “Knitting on the Edge” book at the library last night so I could thumb through it for ideas.
Do you have a favorite of the above? Other ideas? Please share them in the comments!
