Liv: a cardigan

There is not a design from Carrie Bostick Hoge, of Madder, that I do not like. My current work in progress is Liv --a lovely light, open cardigan. The pattern is part of Madder's Anthology 2: Simple Preasures. It can also be purchased as a single pattern on Ravelry.



Sometimes I fail to read the pattern entirely before casting on. No wonder why I experienced some hiccups with "at the same time" instructions. There is nothing complicated with the design. One must pay some attention at the raglan and center increases. Pattern page: here.


On this holiday weekend, I have been cuddling with my family, eating delicious food and trying new beers. 

Beer tasting: Ybor Gold Amber Lager distributed by Florida Beer Company and Estrella Damm, brewed in Barcelona, Spain and distributed by Damm S. A.

  1. What a beautiful red yarn. I totally know what you mean about paying attention... My "Little Wave" cardigan (in progress) has no elbow patches, partly because I knit too far ahead.

    1. Design feature!? I guess the bright side is that you can identify your cardigan anywhere, anytime! Thanks for stopping by.

  6. Not reading a pattern through completely and therefore missing instructions? I'd NEVER do that *whistles innocently* I love the bright red colour that you're working with!
