Hemp cardigan – progress

A quick post to show my progress with the Hemp summer cardigan. It’s coming along quite nicely.  hemp cardy progress

I haven’t worked on it for about a week, so I’m not sure when it will be finished. I’ve actually got a grand total of ten unfinished projects at the moment – 2 blankets, 2 toys, one pair of socks, two shawls, 2 cardigans and one cowl. I’m going to try not to start anything else until I’ve finished 2 or three more things.

    That is just lovely. I can’t quite tell – is it dark blue or black? Either way, I can’t wait to see the finished result!

    I love this cardigan. I would love to get your pattern and maybe start my own.

    Is it pattern available anywhere?

    The colour is black. The pattern is not available yet, but if it turns out OK, I might write the pattern up

    I really love the hemp top. Have you worked out a pattern for it yet? I would like to use it or even purchase it from you if at all possible. It looks like something I would wear all the time.

    Hi Rhonda, I didn’t keep my notes when I made this cardigan, but basically I used the same instructions as for the top down round yoke cardigan, but I made the neckline wider by omitting the first few rows, and then I used a different stitch pattern for the body of the cardigan. I left out the sleeves – I just did one row around the armholes to neaten them up

    The body of the hemp top is a very interesting stitch. What is it? It really looks nice.

    I think I did 2 HDC between every other stitch from row below
