Aidez Cardigan
























It is finished! The absolute stunning Aidez Cardigan! :)

I am so happy! It turned out just perfect! My very own Aidez cardigan made from Drops Karisma.


The seed wishbone pattern on the sleeves is my favorite of all the cables in this cardigan.
I made the arms just a little bit longer. In this kind of garment I like to have them halfway down my hand.







Because of my slightly smaller gauge, I used the instructions for size M to get size S out of it - and it worked! :) (see my first WIP post on this project)
Í also skipped one row of the ear of corn pattern on the fronts in order to make a ribbed collar that can be buttoned up.

These are all the five parts of the cardigan that are about to be seamed together.

The neck extensions I left on hold and did not bind them off. I used kitchener stich to connect them at the end.









Now let's see the result! :)












Look how great this turned out! I am so happy with the result!



I made the fronts a few stiches wider because I wanted to be able to add some buttons. In the end, I used only four of my six buttons.
They look really nice with this cardi. Great choice - patting myself on the back! ;)

And having a little bit wider fronts gives a little more room, means comfort.

If you want to read a bit more about this, see also my second WIP post on this project.










It's just the perfect cardigan for the weather right now. And an absolute beautiful design. I found the instructions easy to follow as well. So, if your in the mood for some serious cable work - that's your go-to-project! I really had fun knitting this cardigan!
























This cardigan is made from a free pattern (as you probably know), which you can find here
And of course you can find this project on Ravelry.

I hope you're having a nice, happy and sunny fall :)

Love,
Stefanie
