Today is glorious and sunny. Today is the day I have swapped over my drawers for summer clothes. They are not that much different but short sleeved t-shirts instead of long-sleeved, a nice surf print dress, a pair of shorts and some white trousers will punctuate my normal wardrobe for a few months.
I made this little summer cardigan over the winter but as I have never worn it, I thought it deserved a mention.
Bloke took the photo, hence a football in the corner! but it has three quarter length sleeves, and is made up of trebles. The motif on the back is the start of a Rowan summer top that I started in this yarn but the gauge was all wrong so I popped it on the back of here.
Is that another football?? Anyway... the yarn is Louisa Harding it has a slight silver shimmer and was easy to work with.(I used the left overs on my jar tutorial.)I think you know me well enough by now to know that I did not pay full price for it, it was in a sale.
The front is held together with a ribbon but it could have been a button. The pattern is free from Ravelry here. Mine does not have a collar because I was playing 'wool roulette' risking the amount I had to finish an item. I do that all the time - it gives my knitting and crochet projects and edgy excitement!
Hope you get some sunshine today. Jo x
