FO: Garter Cardi

That was a quick and fun project for me!
Simple garter stitch. Some shaping at the shoulders and a ribbing band. No pattern. Total freedom!


It was my tv series knitting. Really enjoyable since it was so…. mindless!!

On a recent business trip, I saw many shops windows with cardigans in garter stitch with no shaping. Could it be any easier??

As soon as I got back home, I looked through my stash and found that super perlee acrylic yarn. I held 3 strands together with #10 needles. The texture was exactly what I needed! Fluffy, cozy and warm!


After a quick search on Pinterest for a pattern, I inspired from this pin. It’s not a link to a pattern but the structure seemed easy enough.

You can find some notes on my ravelry project page. If you need more details, please feel free to contact me.

I was so pleased with the result that I wanted to share it with you right away so the photos aren’t the best! Just my back yard where my laundry usually dries! 😛

I’ll try to get somebody to model for me. Or if my F is in good mood he will take some photos but, as we all know, chances are low for that!

Time to go back to my needles now!
I hope your weekend is going great!
See you….!
