Team Ysolda recently welcomed a new member – say hello to Nuala! For this week’s Beautiful Projects post it was her pick, and she went for Cria. It’s a sweater she’s had the yarn ready for since trying on the original sample at Edinburgh Yarn Festival three years ago, and there are plans to cast on soon. Here are a few of my favourites that are making me want to add it to my own queue too…
The body of Cria is a great canvas for experimenting with different stitch patterns and textures, like in this lovely example by Freddy.
Another perfect combination of colours with the contrasting buttons in Catbus’s Cria, and a perfect fit too.
I can’t stop admiring the great colour of this Cria by whitehart, and another lovely fit.
The Wardie cardigan is worked in pieces from the bottom up. When the front and back are complete they're joined at the shoulders and then the sleeves are worked from stitches picked up around the armhole.
If you're interested in knitting Wardie but aren't sure about the finishing here's how the shoulders and sleeve go together.
