Philodendron Finished!

This cardigan pattern has been in my queue since I bought it in 2015, so when I was deciding on a Christmas project, it seemed like a good time to make it happen.

Cast-on on Christmas Eve, it has grown so quickly that I haven’t had chance to tell you about it … and I have finished it already!

The pattern isΒ PhilodendronΒ by Holli Yeoh, and the yarn is Drops Karisma (100% wool) in marbled light grey, colour 72.

It turned out a little on the large size, due to my choice of a substitute yarn, and the sleeves were rather long, so I took the scissors to them, removed two pattern repeats and re-knitted the cuffs.

Result! πŸ˜€

I’ve surprised myself by finishing it so quickly – I think this may be my fastest cardigan project ever!

So what shall I knit next?

How’s your knitting coming along this week? I’d love to hear about it!

    Is that knitted sideways? It’s a very pretty motif, and such a useful sort of colour.
