Felted Tweed Cosy Cardigan

Thank you everyone who popped by to see me at The Knitting and Stitching Show last week! It was lovely to meet you all and so nice to spend time with my Rowan family.

The Cosy Cardigan from Cosy Alpaca Knits was getting a lot of love! Particularly the Felted Tweed version that I was wearing at the show. The yarn usage is different to the Moordale (which is used in the book) so please see below for the quantities if you want to substitute.

Cosy Cardigan – Rowan Felted Tweed version

Yarn A: Seafarer 170 x2 (small & large) 50g ball

Yarn B: Granite 191 x1 (small & large) 50g ball

Yarn C: Turquise 202 x8 (small) x9 (large) 50g ball

The Moordale and Felted Tweed drape quite differently. The Moordale is quite weighty – so that combined with the folded hem give the cardigan a heavy drape. Felted Tweed is lighter and therefore less drapey which gives the finished cardigan a more boxy look.

I personally just want to knit everything in this turquoise shade of Felted Tweed so I couldn’t resist!
