The back of the Joy cardigan is finished. I think the only reason why pattern writers start the instructions off with knitting the back first, is to see if you can actually grin and bear it. Of course, not all patterns are like pulling teeth, and Joy isn’t that bad, but that moss stitch is killer. Flipping the yarn this way and that, I’m glad it’s only a six and a half inch stretch. On a positive note, moss stitch creates the perfect flat fabric with a good bit of give and blocks nicely.
The rest of the pattern should be a breeze really. How do you like my nubbins?! I’m loving them, so simple, but a wonderful detail. You know, you could put just about any pattern on your Joy cardigan if you really wanted to… hint, hint. You really should.
More to come soon.
