The Siri Cardigan

My Siri cardigan is finished. I am so pleased with this cardigan, it turned out just as I wanted it to.

I am in love with this pattern and I have all ready bought yarn to make a second one.

For this cardigan I used Sandnes yarn “Smart”. It’s a 100% wool yarn that’s superwashed. It was quite nice to knit with and the finished piece is both warm and does not itch.

I did two modifications to this cardigan. The first was to make it waist length instead of hip length. This is an easy modification to do as the pattern allows you to try the cardigan on while you are knitting. That way I knew when I reached my waist that I didn’t want it much longer. So I just stopped and did the ribbing right there.

My second modification was the sleeves. According to the pattern the sleeves were to be a length of 36 cm (If I remember correctly), but when I tried the first sleeve on it was too short. It had a middle length and ended somewhere in the middle of my forearm. So I had to lengthen the sleeves with approximately 10 cm.

You can find the pattern on ravelry by the designer Clara Linnea. I really recommend it since it was both fun, easy and quite fast to knit.
