Knitting – slip stitch cardigan

Knitting – slip stitch cardigan….. I saw this pattern and just had to knit it.

Earhart by Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton


It uses a combination of two yarns.  For mine I used Noro Kureyon for the variegated yarn and Rowan Cocoon for the plain yarn.

The cardigan is knitted throughout with knit and slip stitches which gives it is unique look.  to achieve the correct tension I had to go up to 8mm needles using 1 strand of each wool.  The body of the jumper is knitted in one piece up to the armhole shaping so my trusty Knitpro IC and one of my longest wires came into use.

Not 100% happy about the buttons but will sleep on it.

    1. It was the stitch that caught my eye on a wander around Ravelry. Once you get in the mode of slipping and knitting stitches it was surprisingly easy. I love the look. It makes a very warm cardigan!
