Manu Cardigan for Sweetie’s Sister

May 31, 2011

This cardigan has been a long time in the making. While I don’t have shots of the sweater modeled by its recipient and probably won’t for a while, I humbly present the Manu Cardigan:

I was so pleased to find the perfect buttons to go with the yarn in our shop from JHB.

Pattern: Kate Davies’ Manu Cardigan
Yarn: Queensland Collection Rustic Tweed
Needles: US 4, 5, and 7 bamboo circulars and dpns
Made for: My SIL
Timeline: December 4, 2010-May 31, 2011
Modifications: worked extra-long, mirrored yoke pleating
Worst Part: I wish this could have been finished to give to her long ago
Best Part: I love the end result, and I think that she will too

Now that this one is finished, I’ve cast on for my Manu. This class may or may not go–longer classes can be risky because they involve so much commitment–so I want to work as quickly as I can while I’m still motivated.
