I am trying to knit a cardi at the moment using a really nice blue denim/white mix wool which I bought from ebay (job lot of 10 balls For £9.99). This is a pic of the back.
It should end up like this> I am doing the left side collar atm, which sort of folds over the back. I was a bit worried I would have to pick up stitches to do it (I really hate doing that) but you decrease at the armpit edge and increase at the collar edge and begin a ribbed pattern.
Its lovely to look at everyone's work, thanks Dawniy for starting the blog.
