Has anyone knit the dahlia cardigan from the Fall 2011 Interweave? I'm knitting one for my mom out alpaca cloud double-stranded. Does anyone have any tips if you've knit this design? Would anyone like to knit it along with me?
I'm definitely up for the KAL idea. My daughter wants this sweater -- we're still at the yarn selection stage. What size needles will you be using?
I'm not sure yet, I'll have to wait untill the yarn gets here.
I think the original sweater is knit in alpaca and is knit sideways.
Ooohhh..... that is one on my wish list! But I'm not sure when or if I will get to it. So many things I want to knit and so little time!
Another person on ravelry has knit this sweater in alpaca cloud doubled. Here is the link.
Oh, wow, that is beautiful!
If I were you, I wouldn't wait!
Okay, I'll be in the car for two hours today, so I'll bring the sweater along. I got gauge on size five needles, if that helps anyone.
I've almost finished the lace part. Tip: In my expirience, alpaca is really sticky on the zepher needles. It may be different with the harmonys, but your best bet would probably be Nickle-plated.
IMO, I always use NP. I might use wood every now and then, and very, very rarely do I use any sort of plastics. But that is not to say I haven't changed over the years. I used to favor wood.
I totally agree... about 90% of my projects are completed on NP... they are my go to needle!
