Haven't been updating much here lately - the reason is, I'm busily knitting a 1940's cardigan for my daughter that she can wear to a WW2 re-enactment event later this month.
It's in 4ply with a 20-row cable pattern - not too bad once you get the hang of it, but the sleeves are making me grit my teeth - increasing and taking those extra stitches into the pattern is tricky!
The pattern comes from this book:
I've done the back and fronts of the cardigan, then stitches are picked up around the neck to form a yoke. I confess, I had several attempta at this part but couldn't get the pattern to work out as it was written (possibly a typo?), so in the end I just 'fudged' it to fit:
Now - back to those sleeves......and I'll try to get a picture of it being modelled, along with all the other WW2 fashions! :-)
