Patons Colour Block Jacket Book 3756
September 14th, 2016
With another baby due to be born in to our family we had a think about what would be nice for the baby, Peregrine’s nest decided to make a dress and I thought I would knit up a cardigan, I already had a few things on the go with a deadline so thought, for now at least, something simple would be best. I opted for this lovely patons jacket/cardi.
In the original pattern it is knitted in lots of colours which I love! But decided to go with a soft pink/purple colour throughout.
I ended up using stylecraft special DK, I love this yarn, I use it for a lot of projects, it is soft, good quality and comes in loads of colours!
This pattern is REALLY good for beginners as it has little (no) shoulder shaping and simple decreases for the front and sleeves. One thing I did find is that I didn’t need as many buttons and I chose not to add the top one.
Also because it was for a new born baby I wanted as few seams as possible so I joined the shoulders with Kitchener stitch and made seamless (in the round) sleeves
It wasn’t long befog I had knitted up this cute tiny cardi!
I also made this blanket (patons fab DK)
I have made a few of these and posted about them before.
