Had some wool for my birthday and after a couple of false starts on other cardigans I settled for this pattern.

The pattern is Kemari by Berroco and the pattern is in one of their booklets.  there is a chunky  and a DK version of this cardigan.  I made the chunky version.  Unfortunately I could not get the pattern in this country so I had to send to America for it.  Jimmy Beans wool were great, they have no problems sending items outside of America and they give you quotes for different air mail services so you can pick the one you want.  Be warned it is not cheap to send  but as all american craft items are so cheap then that offsets the airmail.  kemari kemari

For the cardigan I used Katia tropic which a cotton tape.  I love the colour ways but being a chainette tape you quite often get the needles caught in the chains.

TROPIC

Had to use IC needles as the back and half the sleeves are knitted in one.

  1. I am the Hon. Sec. of Swanage Disabled Club and we have a Handiclub where members throughout the year make knitted/crochet items to sell on the sea-front in Swanage during the summer. I have only just learnt to crochet – and love it – wish I had learnt years ago. So when I went into the local new wool shop and saw your lovely Granny Square babies cardigan, it was an inspiration. Thank you for making this pattern available FREE. the lady in the shop was so helpful too, and I love the ‘quirky’ things you supply the shop with. Good luck with your knitting/crochet ‘new business’and enjoy living in Swanage as much as we do.
    Sincerely,

    1. Daphne,
      Many thanks for your kind words.
      Please use any of the free patterns for the good work you do.
      I do try to make things that are sightly different to the norm and I’m glad you like them.
      Good luck with your charitable events.
      Jill
