Maybe I'll finish this time...

I had originally knit up the majority of the CPH back in the 'original' KAL, but got sidetracked because I'm envisioning trouble seaming. In typical fashion, I decided to avoid rather than complete it!! The photo shows mostly what I have done so far... I don't have a picture of the sleeves, but one is done and blocked, the other is in the sleeve cap shaping, and the body of the cardigan (knit in the round as one piece) has been seamed at the shoulders (3 needle bind off) since the photo. I still have just a tad more on the second sleeve and the hood. I'm using Rowan Yorkshire Tweed Aran which is really a great yarn! Ebay special, so it was pretty cheap, all things considered. If I ever finish this one, I might try to make another in Wool Ease for a friend.

It looks great so far! You don't have that much more to do.

It's looking good! - Love the colour.

Where did you get your blocking board - I'm desperate for one - I guess they probably don't do them in the UK :(

Thanks! I bought the board online over a year ago... I think this is the link to the company, but it's been so long that I don't truly remember and I can't find the receipt. I do know that I got it for significantly cheaper than most craft and yarn stores sell them for. I LOVE IT!!! The thing has come in handy for so many things!!


Good luck,

Hi! Your sweater looks great! This is my first "post" and I must ask a question; how did you figure out the pattern to be all one piece? I hate seaming too!

Many thanks,
