I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Cardigan Seams and Sleeves Start

CapricanCardiWIPMay5 (4)
I finally got this cardigan joint at the shoulder seam.  I guess if I was making this again I would have left the stitches live and join them in some kind of grafting.  I am not super happy with it, but I can live with the results until I get it assembled completely and then do like a duplicate stitch kind of touch up at the seam on the shoulder.  Is not really crucial, I can live with it, but this is so much cable work that it would be a shame to not really make it more beautiful , ha, ha, ha.

Today I  did the cast on  of the the two sleeves, I have a feeling that I will need to improvise in this pattern and make a gusset for the sleeves, but it is too early for me to think about that.  I have not made that many sweaters or Cardigans to say that I have the experience that tells me it will fit.  We shall see once the sleeves are done. Thanks for stopping by.
