Spring Into Spring Cardi

I had knit this before on a trip back home to Switzerland and then gifted it to one of my best friends Marianne.
Thought it was time for me to have one too….Or perhaps it to will be a gift. Or if anyone loves it I would be willing to sell it too….Smiles I have enough yarn, I could make another one….
This is a very lose fitting cardi on me so would fit someone with medium to large size too.
Really starting to use up my stashed yarn. So thought this FibraNatura Good Earth Solids
would be perfect for this pattern  original  is found 19 Jacke by Lang Yarns

Ribbon Cardigan

2013-06-23 13.53.20Another fantastic pattern from one of my favorite

“FAM Collection” Books.

I truly could knit every pattern from the FAM Books….

every pattern is unique in its style and the yarns are so gorgeous to knit.

Here I knit the cardigan with the exact same yarn and colour as in the book….how lucky am I!

With the Lang Yarns Sol Dégradé 

I used 5 skeins = 1090.0 yards (996.7 m) and had 2.5 skeins left of my stash so bought 1 more so I would have enough to make a shawl or something else with what I have left.

Needle size 7mm made this a very fast and easy knit.

2013-06-24 15.45.21Ein weiteres fantastisches Muster aus einem meiner


FAM Collection” Bücher.

Ich könnte wirklich jedes Muster stricken von diesen FAM Büchern ….

Jedes Muster ist einzigartig in seiner Art, und jede Wolle is wunderbar und herrlich zum Stricken.

Hier habe ich die Weste mit der exakt gleichen Garn und Farbe wie in dem Buch gestrickt …. wie toll ist das!

 Mit dem Lang Yarns Sol Dégradé und nur 5 Stränge = 996,7 m hatte ich genau 2,5 Stränge von meinem Vorrat übrig. So schnell  kaufte ich noch einen Kneuel dazu, so dass ich genug hätte, um einen Schal oder etwas anderes zu stricken.

Nadelstärke 7mm machte diese eine sehr schnelles und einfach stricken.
