Introducing Mrs Darcy

¡Mi primer proyecto serio con dos agujas! Tiene muchísimos fallos, claro: puntos retorcidos, nudos mal escondidos, costuras horriblemente cosidas y además ha quedado demasiado estrecha para llevar algo grueso debajo. Pero como a mí me gusta la veo de color de rosa. Es calentita, cómoda, bonita, está terminada y 100% hecha sólo por mí. :-)

Mrs Darcy Cardigan
Ready to meet Mr Darcy

Lana: 2 ovillos y algo más de Katia Fama en beige. 100% acrílico.
Agujas: 3,5 mm.
Patrón: Mary Weaver.
Modificaciones: Muchas (ver diagrama y notas en Ravelry). Añadí una pasada de punto de cangrejo a ganchillo alrededor del cuello para evitar que se enrolle.
Hay una errata en el patrón original. El punto elástico retorcido se teje:
Pas 1- (derecho) dcho 1 por detrás del punto, rev 1 * repetir
Pas 2- (revés) dcho 1, rev 1 por detrás del punto * repetir

El próximo proyecto lo tejeré con agujas circulares. Se terminó la pesadilla de unir las piezas y dejar costuras horrendas por todas partes.


My first serious knitting project ever! It has lots of mistakes, of course: twisted stitches, knots badly hidden, seams awfully sewn and it turned out too tight to wear anything thick underneath. But I like to look at it through rose-tinted glasses. It's warm, comfy, pretty, finished and 100% made only by me. :-)

Yarn: Beige 100% acrylic Katia Fama. A little more than 2 skeins.
Needles: 3.5 mm / US4.
Pattern: Mary Weaver.
Mods: A lot! See diagram & notes on Ravelry. Crocheted 1 row of crab st around the collar to prevent it from curling up.
Fixed pattern error: Twisted Rib:
Row 1- (right side) k1tbl, p1 to end of row
Row 2- (wrong side) k1, p1tbl to end of row.

I will be knitting with circular needles from now on. No more sewing parts together and leaving all kind of horrid seams behind.

  3. I love the cardigan! Very nice work!

  4. You did a FAB job! Love the color also. I don't see any problem with it.

    Aren't circular needles the best? I pick those over the straight any time.

  8. Alhana,
    Yes you've mentioned before. I'm so pleased you want to help me do squares for blankets for Elderly. If any of your readers would like to join they are most welcome.I would just love receiving the squares and then making them into blankets. I shall post a photo of my Grandmother soon.
    It doesn't take us long to get back into our creativity does it?
    Hugs and Love and many thanks.

  11. Gracias por vuestros comentarios, chicas.

    Thank you for your kind comments, ladies!

    @Marisa: Gracias por el link. Soy bastante negada a la hora de coser.

    @Libby: Mistakes are mostly on the back of the cardigan that of course I didn't show you on purpose!

  12. oh my goodness!!! THIS IS FANTASTIC!! turned out great! I wish I had the dedication to complete such an involved project. I tend to go for the quick, one night projects. Can't even get past the cuff on those socks I started =P

    I think it looks fabulous on you. great job!

  13. Very beautiful and elegant!

  14. I'm back to comment on your work. You know I love this colour, you have made such a wonderful job. I bet your mom likes it! You're right, you are slim!

    Kindest regards,
    Hugs and Love Sue x
    from a very cold UK.

  15. OH, OH, Mrs. Darcy is just amazing!
    I'm not listening to you; it's fabulous! And the color was a wise choice; it will go with so many other colors. Very nice.

    Another OH, but this one is not so nice. My blog reader did not notify me of this post. I came over here just to say hi, and I was surprised to see this post.
    I may have to change readers.

    Stay warm!
