Granny Ann Cardigan - Ta Dah!!!!

Well, here she is in all her glory! My first design (with a little help from various books and the internet of course) .... THE GRANNY ANN CARDIGAN!!!

Please excuse the quality of the pics but I was rushing around this morning trying to take them before coming to work. My mom was visiting and was taking the cardigan back with her so I had to get the pics this morning. I only finished it late last night and the ambient lighting in our house is not conducive to taking pics after dark!!!! Anyway, enough excuse making - here's another pic .....

As you can see, it's a very basic stocking stitch pattern with two identical rib columns up each front (I call them barley sugar twists!!! Does anyone else remember barley sugar twists???)

I must say, I'm pretty pleased with how it came out and although it looks a little ropey cos I haven't washed or blocked it yet, it is very soft, very drapey and screaming to be worn!!! I know Granny Ann is going to love it and we're just going into Winter here so it's timely too!

I'll be posting the pattern on a separate post so pop over and check it out if you fancy making one. I'm goiing to make one for me but in a very soft grey ....

Til soon.


  1. Well done Laura, the Granny Ann cardigan is looking very warm and comfy. You must be very pleased with yourself!

  2. This is SO lovely Laura! Well done you! It looks SO professional. And yes, make another in a beautiful soft grey for yourself - perfect. I wish my knitting were up to making garments but not quite there yet! I love your finger-bisciit cars too - what fun those little ones must have had. E x


I would love to hear from you! Please leave me a message...
