We’re delighted to be hosting our very own Rosemont Cardigan Knit-A-Long on the Kelbourne Woolens Blog. The Rosemont Cardigan by Hannah Fettig, features Terra in Nettle, and is a great way to stay warm during the last few months of winter.
I had planned to share the pictures of my Finished Rosemont next Wednesday, but to be honest, I couldn’t wait.
So, without further ado, here is my finished Rosemont Cardigan.
After thoughtful consideration I went with Terra in Black Locust Bark and I couldn’t be happier. The earthy brown tone with hints of a blue charcoal grey featured within the silk noils will be a perfect staple piece in my wardrobe. I chose to knit the 39.5″ version of the pattern, giving me a little bit of ease but not the 3″ as recommended by Hannah. I have a feeling this will be my go to cardigan for the weekends due to its oversized nature and relaxed fit.
Like other knitters who participated in the Knit-A-Long, I struggled with the neck and raglan increases. But, thanks to a little help from Kate and Hannah, I was able to confidently finish the upper body of my cardigan.
One of my favorite parts of the sweater is the oversized shawl collar. Perfect for those brisk, spring mornings where a scarf is too much but you still a little coverage from the early morning winds.
After all is said and done, I give the Rosemont Cardigan two thumbs up. Also, thanks to Maura for the lovely pictures!
We hope you enjoyed following our progress on Instagram and Ravelry as much as we did. Thanks to all of you who participated – we truly loved seeing your progress photos and finished objects!
Happy (almost) spring,
