The Juicy Pink Cardigan

You may recall I stared playing with some Icelandic Plötulopi at the beginning of the month and how my notion of making something pretty in intricate lace fell by the wayside…

Instead I worked with the colour and was true to myself and my simple ways, as I made a casual long fronted cardigan. It’s light and airy and I am sure it will flow nicely once I get it blocked gently.

However, for blocking I have to wait for period of no rain, which is rather hard to come by these days, so until then I show you a couple of preliminary shots of the cardigan which may just become a favourite. The yarn definitely is a favourite, as for the colour, well, shall we just agree that it’s on the pink side of juicy pink?!

Note: The cardigan is worked in Icelandic Plötulopi on a size 5.5 mm hook. The pattern will be simple and easy and it is in the making.

    I love the pattern – can’t wait until you publish it (I love the pink by the way). I’ll keep an eye on the Rav Lopi Friends group and hope you will tell us when it is available. Well done.

    Woops, I just went into my engine room and found all these lovely messages! WOW!

    Thruth be told, I actually love it too and when I wear it, it’s not one bit too pink. However, having worn it there some rather radical adjustments needed before it can be called a pattern. Once they have been done and tested, we should be in the clear for a pattern release!

    One thing that really works is the yarn. It’s as light as a feather and the drape is wonderful now that I have blocked it – and gotten rid of the very distinct sheep scent…

    So folks, watch this space!
