Boring but comfortable cardigan

ronhuber's picture

I finished this cardigan a month or so ago but just washed and blocked it today. My friend Miguel tried it on but I had knit it for myself and it is much too large for him. It is made with Jamieson and Smith Sheltland Wool on 3.25 mm needles. Nice mindless knitting in the round with a steek that I didn't bother securing as the Shetland wool really sticks to itself. It is so cozy and perfect for the fall evenings. I think it will make it to the top of the list of my comfortable sweaters.

The sweater is terrific and looks great on you. A comfortable, no nonsense "homage to Fred MacMurray" cardigan is a wonderful staple to the wardrobe. Enjoy it.

Beautiful knitting, Ron!

Beautiful knitting, Ron! Makes me ashamed that I haven't worked up the nerve to try a cardiagan yet. It looks quite cozy on Miguel- you might have to fight him for it.

Yes...classic indeed. A very similar sweater was one of the reasons I first wanted to learn to knit, although I ended up making a very different sweater. Yours is the perfect sweater to throw on when you go to the movies, or just sitting around the house knitting. Very nice.
