Springtime cardigan

Now we are entering spring I thought I’d show you the cardigan I’m knitting. It’s still warm enough (using lovely soft alpaca wool!) to take me through the cooler pre-summer weather but the lacy cream look makes me feel like I’m leaving winter behind…

I have finished the first half which is knitted from the sleeve towards the centre of the body incorporating the front and back in one piece. It is the first time I’ve used a pattern using this construction. The cardigan will have batwing style sleeves and a tighter ribbed lower body section. If you have problems picturing this then you’ll just have to wait and see the finished item 😉
