Couronne Cardigan

It's been just over a year since I cast on the Couronne cardigan by Helen Rush. Other knitting projects took over for much of last year and now the cardigan is finished after spending most of 2014 neglected at the back of a cupboard. (I wrote a piece about this pattern and yarn back in January 2014 here).

The pattern is very well written and I enjoyed working on this project.  I used the same yarn as recommended in the pattern, the Ty-Dye yarn does make the colour changes easy compared to traditional stranded colour work. However, there is still a requirement to be careful with the tension on the colourwork sections, which I realised after I'd completed the yoke.

I'd definitely use this pattern again and recommend it to others.

  1. Great choice of colours. The pattern up the sides is a nice touch and very slimming.....not that you aren't already slim!
