Cabled Yoke Cardigan, Scarf, etc

I've finished! The cardigan is finished and it looks GREAT! Get a load of this! I also found some lovely clasps on eBay and it goes perfectly with the cardigan.

I want to make another one now, maybe in a different colour though not sure what colour…don't think they do purple aran :'(

I also completed this drop stitch scarf , I did it in Noro Silk Garden and used 3 balls. I initially bought the yarn for Askew, but didn't like it when I started so I frogged it. Then I saw Jan making a drop stitch scarf at our last knitting meet and after a bit of discussion with her decided to make the scarf up in the Noro. It looks gorgeous, but needs to be blocked to show it's full potential. I initially made this for me, but Jess has made it quite clear that I'm not going to get to wear it LOL

Now I'm making Beaumonde for Jess's friend, Ellie as a Christmas present.


  1. Lovely cardigan and it looks quite nice on you! The scarf is lovely too and I hope you post a picture of it after it's blocked. I really enjoy doing drop stitch scarves but I never thought of doing it with Silk Garden. I just so happen to have some balls that were supposed to be a vest but ended up frogged!

    I haven't forgotten I owe you several patterns! I'm planning on hitting the library photocopier this weekend!


  2. The cardigan looks great and you've inspired me to get started on mine! I worked up a bit of the first sleeve last night (but discovered an error this morning). Oh well, fits and starts but it will sputter along...congrats on yours!

  3. Beautiful, beautiful work! I can only dream of being able to produce such lovely work! The cardigan has me in awe.
