blackberry stitch


This cardigan took me a total of 12 days to complete. Aran wool & size 7 needles are the way forward.

The pattern can be found over here at Drops design - I changed it slightly and used moss stitch instead of garter stitch following a recommendation from Yumi. Much better. I also think blackberry stitch might be my new favourite technique.

In an effort to wean myself off the knitting (and to use up some of my enormous pile of wool) I am now sticking to crochet squares. The plan is to make a blanket using a different pattern on each square. Good skills training.

ps. Thanks to my mum for sending me the buttons for my cardigan!
