Pippin in Salem

Bex and I dodged the witches, warlocks and goths to spend a little time wandering around Salem while staying with friends after Rhinebeck. With all of the samples from The Rhinebeck Sweater back in my possession I couldn’t resist trying them out. Don’t worry Gudrun, I took Pippinoff before eating a chocolate filled doughnut.  

I had to borrow this great wolf bag that Bex stitched so you could see it. She bought the totewith the crosses printed on so it was really easy to make, but very effective. Here she is stocking up on embroidery threads at the needlepoint store. I managed to resist those silks, but not the beads down the street. In case that’s not enough craftiness there’s also a yarn store right opposite, where I found this colourblocked Blank Canvas on display. Excellent idea.

How to assemble Wardie
How to assemble Wardie

by Ysolda support@ysolda.com October 11, 2019 0 Comments

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. The shoulders are shaped at the back, with neat cabled decreases and the bound off edge of the front pieces wraps over the shoulder to join the decreased edge. This style of shaping is known as English tailoring and gives a beautiful fit and a neat finish that's often found on high end ready to wear knitwear.

If you're interested in knitting Wardie but aren't sure about the finishing here's how the shoulders and sleeve go together.
