I have in my possession two cardigan patterns. I like both of them, but I am only making one right now. I can not figure out which one I want to make. So could you give me your opinion?
This one starts from a shrug like garment & you pick up the stitches along the back to knit down. This one is good, cause I can make it as long as I want (wonderful) & the shrug is quite simple to make. The only thing that is dragging me down is the fact that I will have to do wraps & turns, pick up stitches, & hopefully get the measurements. There will be no cables in my, just straight ribbing all the way.
This one is basically a giant circle that you put afterthought arms into. This is the simplest one, but I am afraid that I would go crazy with the size of the circle I would need to make. I have a big butt & big belly, I like to cover those up. Plus, with a big bust I am afraid that the circle would hang down to my knees before I got it big enough for me to feel comfortable.
Which ever one I choose will be made with worsted weight gray (charcoal) colored yarn. I have not bought the yarn yet, so I can freely choose either. I will be swatching for both of them so that I don’t have to worry.
