FO Friday - Week 6





I love it, I wish it were mine!

Baby bundle 2 is plodding along.  The cardi is a new technique to me.  You knit the sleeves and body until armhole (body all in one) and then knit across the front and then sleeve, then back, then sleeve, then front again.  The you start decreasing for the raglan and then finally cast off.  This cardi has been lots of counting for me, the massive amount of 233 cast on stitches, then decreasing for the frills, then the raglan decreasing, I am not ready to pick up the neckline, so more counting!

I am going to start the long process of reading all your amazing FO Friday's.  So why don't you go check some more out?

    And eek, good luck with all that counting on the cardi. I hope it goes quickly so you can stop counting! ;)

  9. What's not to love about a RIPPLE! Love the colors, it's been a long time since I've crocheted a ripple. I love them, but sorta OD'd doing too many long ago. Need to put it back on my to do list.
