Complete: Alska Cardigan

The moment you’ve all been waiting for… My Alaska cardigan is finally finished!

Alska1Knitted with Debbie Bliss tweed this cardigan was inspired by Rillie’s version.  I knitted the small but wanted it slightly cropped so I started the armholes after 12 1/2 inches instead of 16 1/2.  I also made the bottom rib slightly shorter.  Apart from those alterations and the fact that my mistake rib was so much a mistake that it ended up as a normal rib everything else is the same.

Alska3Alska5Thanks to my lovely friend Kate for taking these photos for me.  Considering it’s been so hot here lately I’ve already worn this several times.  The evenings are getting cooler.  I don’t want summer to end!
