Gramps Cardigan

Gramps Cardigan”

 Yes it is a baby cardigan….by Kate Oates

  Unwind Yarn House  needed a sample for this yarn called Vermont Organic Fiber Company O-Wool Balance  so here we go…..knitting, knitting and more knitting….wonderful.

I knit the cardigan in size 12 months and used US 5 -3.75mm and US 6 -4mm needle and a total of 3 skeins about 390 yards or 356.6meters. 

I do find that the sleeves are a little tight on the cuff and on the arm, though I have the same measures as the pattern for that size. Seems that other knitter’s found the same.
I think casting even 2 stitches more to the sleeve would make a different in the cuff circumference. And one could easily adjust the extra stitches to the top part.
Other than that a fun pattern to follow and sooo sweet on a 12 month old child…have fun knitting one too….

 Ja, es ist eine Baby Strickjacke …. von Kate Oates


  “Unwind Yarn House” Benötigt ein Beispiel für dieses Garn: von Vermont Organic Fiber Firma, “O-Wool Balance” so hier gehen wir voran….. Stricken, Stricken und mehr Stricken ….

Ich stricke die Jacke in Größe 12 Monaten und verwendete US 5  -3.75mm und US 6  -4mm Nadel und insgesamt 3 Stränge davon etwa  356.6meters.Ich finde, dass die Ärmel ein wenig eng sind, obwohl ich die gleichen Maßnahmen wie das Muster für diese Größe hatte. Scheint, dass andere Strickerin das auch gefunden haben.
Ich denke, etwa so 2 Maschen mehr, um die Hülse wäre auch recht gut damit es nicht so eng ist. Man könnte ganz einfach die zusätzlichen Stiche in den oberen Teil einbauen.
Sonst aber ein wunderschönes  Muster zum Sricken und sooo süß für ein 12 Monat younges Kind … so viel Spaß beim Stricken!
