Cecily is a fun and vibrant cardigan with a stripy chevron pattern which gives it a retro chic feel. The shape is cropped with short sleeves. Perfect to layer over little dresses and long-sleeved t-shirts & jeans. The cardigan is knitted in one piece with raglan shaping, so there is almost no sewing up to do (just a tiny bit at the underarm).
Craftie Pixie knitted this cardigan and did a brilliant job as always. The cardi is finished off with garter stitch neck and button band and a big button.
My second design in this issue is one of my favourite designs this year, Mia, a fitted, classic cable sweater. Again, Craftie Pixie did the knitting for me. She's fantastic and I can't do all the designs I do without her superfast knitting.
Mia is knitted in the gorgeous Milla Mia Merino. This is my first design in this yarn and I love it! This merino is soft, bouncy and has excellent stitch definition - exactly what a merino yarn should be and the colour range is stunning. I'm hoping I'll be able to use this yarn for more designs in the future.
