On the Needles :: Aidez Cardigan

I’m so excited about this knitting project! In reality though, this is really my Aidez #2. I made one back in 2014, and it was my most favorite thing ever. My favorite thing to knit, and my favorite thing to wear. Unfortunately for Aidez #1, I got careless in my washing and I ruined it. I used 100% wool yarn (what can I say, I was new), and I threw in a couple other sweaters when I washed it one day. I just throw my sweaters in the washer with some Eucalan wool wash on the delicates cycle. This was fine for washing 1 wool garment at a time, but you can’t add other things in with it! Whoops…

Aidez #1 (RIP)

I had been wanting to remake my lovely cardigan for a while anyway because I wanted it a bit looser, and I wanted it to be easier to care for. So, here I go! I got a gift certificate to Knit Picks for Christmas (score!), and I got some Wool of the Andes Superwash Bulky.

I got the yarn right after Christmas, and I’ve already got the back and 1 1/2 of the front panels done. Not too shabby considering my first version took 8 months to make. This is such a fun pattern, and I know I learned soooo many new techniques when I was new to knitting. And, it’s amazing how it has all come back to me after almost 3 years.

Details:

Pattern: Aidez by Cirilia Rose– knitting size M

Yarn: Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Superwash Bulky in Dove Heather

Mods: None really, except I’m knitting a size larger because this yarn is not as bulky as the pattern yarn.
