One hat and one cardigan

 Current obsession – cables. And tweed yarn. The hat is Habitat by Brooklyntweed. I knitted the larger size (it’s still quite small) using this undyed mysterious tweedy yarn from the stash. I just love how the cables work with the crown decreases. It’s all about delightful details, don’t you agree?
After I was done with the hat, I knitted a humongous brioche scarf for the boyfriend (photoshoot soon!) and then finally it was time for my great cardigan project!
 After one false start (it was too big) I think I’m on my merry way. It’s in the round, it’ll be steeked. I took the stitch from Vale by Broklyntweed and the yarn is Soft Donegal by Studio Donegal. Yellow, to cheer me up! I think the sleeves will have a different pattern as the main motif is tad too big for a sleeve
I’m also loving this cabled coat, I think it would be great in my HF Blue Faced DK in Cinder or similar colourway. Let the cabling begin!
Do you go through phases with your knitting?

  1. Beautiful Cables!

    I definitely know what you mean by phases. I go through cable phases, color work phases, tweed phases, Brooklyn Tweed phases, and/or Westknits phases (though not lately), and sometimes even spinning phases.

    The hat is beautiful and I love the stitch pattern for the sweater.

    Have you had a dreary winter in Ireland? It's been awful in the States…
