DROPS cardigan #3

I love this pattern. It’s the most ingenious, fast knit ever made. Plus, I have had more compliments on the 2 I have made already than any other sweater I have knit. Talk about gratifying!!

This one has yet to be washed/blocked so don’t mind the uneven reverse stockinette and puffy seams. I just had to get it posted!

I purchased the button from Knit & Pearl a while back for another project and decided not to use it. I love it with this sweater!

I found that I really like the double seed with the reverse stockinette. It is simple yet it keeps your attention. I have cast on for a fourth with even more changes to the pattern. More to come when it’s finished ;o)

I also, finally, finished my dad’s black dress socks. I started them in March for his bday in April and just couldn’t get them done in time. 13sts/inch on size 00’s was a real pain in my butt! But, I did finish them just in time for Christmas!

I only have 3 hats left to make. They will be either zeebee’s or my own single crochet beanie pattern. And they don’t get shipped out so I can put off doing them until after our Dland trip. Nice!

And, I just found out this morning that my brother and sister-in-law are having a baby boy! Now I can start the knitting!

  1. Oh my! That is a great sweater! You are truly blasting through those, aren’t you? And dad’s socks look great. He will love them. So jealous that you get to go to D-land. Mark is in Miami and I am freezing in the ice. And of course it’s not snow, just ice.


  2. Wow… beautiful sweater! And thanks for the introduction to Drops… I visited their site to look for the pattern and they have more cardigan patterns than you have skeins of yarn… might you post the pattern number for this beauty?


  3. It’s crazy how many great patterns they have for free!! It’s great to hear from you & I hope to see you soon!
