And just like that we are already coming to the end of the first week of our Delancey Cardigan knit along!

Side Panels!

And I can easily say this is the strangest way I’ve ever started a sweater. I’m 54 rows into the Delancey Cardigan and it looks more like a huge bra-top than a sweater. And it’s downright impossible to figure out if we have picked the right size. But trust the pattern, right?!

Left Panel!

I’m LOVING my colors! They are loud and ridiculous and beautiful. Knit Picks Swish DK, my main color yarn, is knitting up seamlessly with the Knit Picks Brava Sport, my contrast color. I really like how every row is different, and how you really have to stay on your toes with this pattern! So fun.

Lumps and Bumps

The nature of the pattern really makes it hard to take good progress pictures! But here I am at row 54. If your sweater looks different than mine that is ok! I’m following the shortened sweater pattern instructions so my stripes will be in a different place than if you aren’t following the shortened pattern. And even then! I’m a seriously terrible counter. I could be off.

One week down, seven to go! How is your Delancey looking so far?
