New York Cardigan – Made by Ma

Ma’s been at it again.  She knitted me a Christmas cardigan and showed me that this is how lovely Aran weight cardigans should look.

The pattern is New York Cardigan by Erin Harper which you can purchase on Ravelry (of course…this is one of my favourite resources for knitting patterns).

The yarn is Sublime Cashmere Merino Silk Aran.

It’s so delightful to wear.  Soft and cosy and comfortable.

I love the detail on the front band:

Once again I prove I’m the luckiest girl in the world!

Funny story, though…I wore this cardigan yesterday to take Ma out for belated birthday coffee and cakes and to purchase fabric for her birthday gift.  We were sat having coffee and Ma got up to get serviettes.  When she returned she was laughing to herself.  She’d been thinking as she walked away from the table what a lovely cardigan I was wearing…only to realise it was the one she’d made!

Which goes to prove what I’m always telling her, that she is indeed a talented craftswoman.

    It’s beautiful. She has every right to be proud of her handiwork

  2. Gorgeous – jealous because you have the cardi and jealous because your Ma is so clever. And a final jealous because we can´t get fabulous wool like that here 🙁 OK, I´m over it now and happy for you all!

      Well….you can’t have Ma or the cardi…keeping those… ;-)..but I thank goodness for the internet when it comes to buying yarn.

      I can remember the days when all you could get was scratchy acrylic in psychedelic colours. I LOVE the internet!

    That’s lovely Evie – the yarn looks beautifully soft. Well done Joan! Can I adopt her as my mum?

      It is SO soft! I must remember to wear it when I see you in April…although I shall keep a very watchful eye on it! 😉

    I also meant to ask , did your Mum make it longer than the pattern instructs? I bookmarked the pattern as I would like to make one myself and it seems shorter when I checked Ravelry. If I start soon it might be ready for next Winter 😉
