Noro Silk Garden Reknitted




I have finished reknitting the Noro silk garden that I made as a cardigan earlier this year, I was never happy with the effect of the colour spread so before Christmas I gave it the kermit treatment and have now reknitted it as a jumper, I much prefer it as a jumper and I personally like the effect of using four balls of yarn to create panels of colour. The sleeves were knitted with three balls of yarn. Photos are of the cardigan before and front and back of the new jumper.

I really like the sweater too! I think with the cardigan, although it was very nice, it has that not buttoned up level appearance and you don't want people thinking you have had too much fizzy pop and can't concentrate enough to do your buttons up straight! Well done, lovely job.

Hey, thanks for your comment :)

I really like what you've done with the sweater, I have to admit, I thought your cardi was terribly pretty, but the sweater is quite different, so *not* hand-made looking, you've achieved a rather cool effect with the blocks of colours. Great!!
