Sorry to be so vulgar, but I’ve finally finished my first adult knitted garment. The candy stripes cardigan is done and here it is:


Drop stitch cardigan front

And back:

Drop stitch cardigan back

Yarn: Acrylic from Shillong. Less than 600 gms both colours together.

Needles: Pony 3.75 mm and 4.5 mm straights (pattern calls for 4.5 and 5.00mm)

Pattern: Robin Wools sheet from Shillong (Rs 10 per sheet)

Time: Over 2 weeks

Size: Me!

Extra: #1 First-ever adult garment!

#2 Used the largest size number of stitches and worked it to my size measurements

#3 Read what Nona says about process vs product. I’m not sure I like the fit of this cardigan either, but I liked making it. And of course, I look nothing like this: :-p

In love with sewing, weaving, crochet, and with bags and pouches and fabric. I love colour and pattern and texture. I love having my hands busy. Some day I hope my craft will become my day job.

  1. First: congratulations on completing your first adult wearable! As a newbie to crochet, I can’t yet claim the honor but I’m about to start work on my first KID wearable so we will see how that goes first. I love your pink stripes and I think your overall product looks great – on you! But I also found the question of process v. product intriguing and it is that conversation that often propels me forward with a project that I’m starting to question. Will I like the end product – maybe not – but I sure am enjoying the process. Once again, congratulations!

  2. Great job with your first adult sweater. I’m glad you enjoyed the process — it’s why we knit/crochet — and I’m doubly glad you look nothing like the model 🙂
