I hope you all had a fantastic start to 2015 – bedtime for us was 11pm, it’s no secret I’m a nana!
And to celebrate the new year, how about a quick and easy 1940s cardigan in thick wool? The simple stitch would be great for a novice knitter, so if your new year’s resolution was learning to knit this could be the pattern for you.
I really like the strong shoulders and nipped waist!

The yarn is Patons Bonny, a 12-ply weight (or bulky weight) yarn, and is knitted up on 5.5mm and 6.5mm needles.
