FO – Charity’s Wrap / WIP – Folded Squares Cardigan

I’m so happy I can share final pictures of one my latest FO’s (Finished Objects)! I’ve been chomping at the bit to share the full project with you. Charity’s Wrap went live on Ravelry today and guess what? It’s a free pattern! Isn’t that exciting news? This was a very simple project, with a bit of easy lace thrown in for good measure. It’s meant for someone new to lace and is super easy.

You may remember some of my other posts about this project where I was just starting the project here and the blocking process of acrylic here. Those two posts really contain all the information…or you can check out my notes on Ravelry. While you are there, want to add me as a friend? I love looking at others notes, pictures and projects for inspiration!

In addition to starting my next pair of socks (more on that Thursday!), I’ve also decided to cast on for my very first Cardigan. I figured if I can knit a pair of socks, why can’t I knit a sweater? The pattern is free from Purl Soho and is called Folded Squares Cardigan. One of my knitterly friends made it and brought it to our weekly MeetUp group and it looked fantastic on all body shapes and sizes. I knew it would be the perfect start for me to begin my foray into sweater knitting.

I’m using size US 8 – 5.0 mm 40″ circular knitting needles and the yarn is Knit Picks Comfy Sport in the color Planetarium. I originally ordered the color Whisker; however they were low on stock and I wanted to start this ASAP. I’m so glad they were as the color is gorgeous and for only $2.99 a skein, how could you go wrong? The yarn is super soft and is working up beautifully! I was going to tell you how many rows I am into this; however I just updated to iOS9 on my iPhone and the app I use is not opening 😦 Looks like I’ll be counting by ridges instead of rows after all! Darn technology! You have to learn something new every day, right? Until next time…

Happy Knitting!

    I have some bulky and homespun to use up, this may just be the perfect pattern for it. Thank you for sharing.

    1. This pattern is also super easy to widen or make smaller depending on how many repeats of the pattern you use! I’m glad you liked it!
