We’ve come to the end of our Delancey Cardigan knit along. Luckily the end of a knit along means a finished sweater for our participants! This KAL had the highest participation of any of my KALs to date, and the highest finish rate. Take a look at these beautiful sweaters!

A huge thank you to everyone that participated! We had 15 finished sweaters, which is an all time Sweatshop knit along high!
Random.org picked sweater #5 to win an Alexis Winslow pattern, and that sweater belongs to Jamie! Congrat’s girl! I’ll email you your KAL prize details!
We’ll be kicking off another KAL soon. Why not, right?! They are SO FUN! I’m already missing knitting along with you guys!
It’s technically week 9 of our 8 week Delancey Cardigan knit along, but who is really counting? This week we are sewing on buttons, weaving in ends, and blocking in order to submit our finished picture in the FO forum by April 15th for a chance to win another Alexis Winslow pattern!
I know I’ll be running out to find some cute buttons for my Delancey in the next day our two. Let the button stressing begin!
Just a few in progress shots to share before the big FO post next week. There are already beautiful sweaters rolling in, and I can’t wait to see them all as they come in this week!
I can’t believe it! After over two months of working on our Delancey Cardigans, our knit along is almost over. This week we are tackling both the lower border, button band AND collars of our sweaters. Sound like a lot? It kind of is! But you’ve got two weeks to finish your sweater completely in order to qualify for our knit along giveaway, so we should be calling this SOL KAL Weeks 8-9.
What? You didn’t know there was a giveaway associated with this knit along? Well there is! Email me a picture or post a picture on our Delancey Cardigan FO forum page before Sunday April 15th for a chance to win a pattern of your choice from Alexis Winslow! Fun right? A little added motivation to weave in all those ends never hurts!
So this week we are picking up a ton of stitches! Around the bottom of your sweater for the lower edge, then picking up stitches all around the front and neck edge for the collar and button band. Practice makes perfect!
This Week’s Delancey Cardigan Goal: Finish your sweater! This includes the lower edge, the collar, and the button band. Then you’ll weave in all those ends, add buttons, and block to get a perfect fit. A LOT? Yes. But remember! You’ve got until April 15th, another whole week, to get all this finished. So don’t panic! You can do it. It’s all garter stitch anyway, right? Easy peasy!

After two weeks of sleeve knitting you are an old pro, right? And I bet you can guess what we are doing this week. That is right! Finishing the final sleeve of out almost totally finished Delancey Cardigan! I know sleeve knitting has slowed because it’s a little mind numbing, but we are in the final stretch! Put on a movie you love and push through!
This Week’s Delancey Cardigan Goal: Finish your second sleeve. Yeah, it’s a little painful, but you can see that the end is near! And next week we get to do something completely different. There is a silver lining!
Email me questions or ask them on the forum! And be sure to share sleeve progress pics!

A lot of KALers had trouble with the picked up stitches and short rows that make up the Delancey Cardigan sleeves, but we worked through it and now have a healthy start to our first sleeve. Thank god for stripes, right? They break up the St st in the round knitting to make it work up as quickly as possible. And that is a good thing since this week is more sleeves!
This Week’s Delancey Cardigan Goal: Work another big chunk of sleeve. This week we’ll be finishing the first sleeve and getting about 8-10” into the second sleeve. So more short rows! But by now you are an expert so I know it will be a lot easier than last week.
This week’s instructions are short and sweet. Keep working through those sleeves and we are going to have finished cardigans in no time! Email me questions or ask them on the forum! And be sure to share sleeve progress pics!
