So here's the little girl's cardigan before blocking
It's much easier to block wools than acrylic but it is possible with a bit of steam.
I had such high hopes for this cake of yarn
I think it is made for scarves
and NOT for sweaters.
I didn't realize when I bought it that it is DK weight so that was the first bummer.
The colors are just too jarring and not the look I can admire for a sweater.
Maybe I would use this for a Brioche project when the 'other' color would be a dark solid.
Anyway, I used almost the full cake of yarn, Lion Brand in DK weight, #6 needles.
Goodbye to this project!
(It is destined to my fancy dressing 5 yo granddaughter who will love it!
But first I need to knit a vest to match for her brother! lol)
I think it will be adorable on a child. Great work on blocking acrylic!ReplyDelete
