Candy for Knit Wits

Candy Cardigan

Pattern: Candy Cardigan by Anna and Heidi Pickles

Yarn: In the Loop Baby from Big Lots in pale turquoise and off-white.
Content: 100% Acrylic

Needles: Addi Turbo Circular size 6

Cast on: January 6, 2013
Completed: February 17, 2013

Adjustments: I used only 2 colors in the yoke. I reversed them, starting with color1. Instructions say to knit 13 cm of stockinette after the 2-color section. I knit until total piece length from cast on was 11 inches. I also knit the front bands on separate by picking up 65 sts along the edge.

Comments: Was a very fun knit. The yarn is not the best quality though. Definitely mill end stuff. It was only 2 bucks for a 4 oz. skein. You get what you pay for.



The yoke is done with 2-color slip stitch weave.

It will keep a needy child warm.

I liked the pattern so much, I've started another one. This time in lime and black.

Live long and prosper. \\//
