I am slowly reducing my stash of wool but still have a long way to go. The difficulty is knowing what to make with the odd balls of wool as generally there is not enough of one colour to make a complete garment.
I have a Pinterest board for woolwork
and one for yoke sweaters.
I was interested in making a sweater completely on a round needle and using fair isle all the way up the sweater but I don’t have the confidence yet to try that so I thought I would give a cardigan a go and move on from there.
I found a fair isle pattern archive on Pinterest and I chose a classic high buttoning cardigan pattern and then worked out how I could fit in the fair isle pattern.
The pattern I chose was this one.
I am happy with the finished product but I still have a lots of wool to use.
The buttons are rather bright but they were in my stash so I put them to use.
