The Shalom cardigan seems to be on every knitter’s list at some time, there are 2482 completed projects of this on Ravelry and I’m sure it will increase by the time I publish my post.
After an afternoon in blacksheepwools new barn, I purchased way to much wool with no idea of projects. The Debbie Bliss Donegal Luxury Tweed Aran in lovely bright pink, a massive pack of bargain pale pink cotton, lovely Rowan Country in green tones, for possible felting and some baby wool.
The pink aran was used to create my very own Shalom cardigan. I changed the pattern a little, added a bit of extra length, and changed the design to close at the front and added a row of pattern to form cap sleeves. I am pleased with the results, though still need to find wooden buttons.
I added a little crocheted flower for detail whilst waiting to find the perfect buttons.
I now have a queue of 5 projects to be completed, the first being a poncho that purchased Sirdar demin ultra for and then a few things for summer.
