Ok - first REAL design!!
Sat down with Damo - stitch cards, pen and paper and have designed my first cardigan. Did the swatch on 17 April 2001 but then ended up travelling a lot for work so this project lay dormant for quite a few weeks.
Saved by a wisdom tooth operation....five days off work in the house with a "fat head" meant I nailed the project!
The front and back stitch is "Ladder Tile" a 20 row repeat pattern (mult. 12)
Sleeves were a 5 x 2 rib
I knitted the body flat but the sleeves in the round. In hindsight, I would have done the whole thing in the round.
Coco inspired for one of the biggest, beefiest, kings of high camp! I am really happy with the results.
I gave it to him and he went straight out to the bars to show it off :) success!!
