Wildflower Cardigan

I love the monthly knit-a-long we do at the shop. The ladies are great, and the projects are always something I wanted to make anyway. That being said, the fact that they move on to a new project every month has left me with quite a few knit-a-long victims. Projects that I started, and worked on dutifully for the month, only to drop like a sack of potatoes when the next month's project came along.

Meet one such victim.


That is a completed back, completed sleeve, and partial sleeve of Alana Dakos's Wildflower Cardigan from Coastal Knits. 

It's a very lovely sweater, but it's 99% stockinette and done in sport weight yarn. It's boring. I need to line up some really exciting movies to watch while I work on it. About the only "fun" part is the scallop at the bottom of all the pieces. 


It only takes four rows though, then it's back to the stockinette. There will be a few cables and bobbles when I get to the pockets on the front, but they will also be over quickly. 

I pick this up for a few rows now and again, but it's seriously slow progress now that the knit a long is over and there's no incentive to show progress each weak. 


  1. Oh I really like the scallop edging, it might be slow going but that is going to be a very pretty sweater!

  2. LOL. I love how your kitty is helping to hold your hem line in place in the above photo. I hope you're able to find the energy to finish this! It looks like you're really close to finishing.

  3. I made this for my mom for Christmas. It's a beautiful sweater, but it takes a really long time.
