Otto Day Cardigan

After the Clara dress, I wanted a nice quick warm knit. The Otto Day cardigan has been in my queue for a while and I thought it would be the ideal project.

I knit the 12 month size. Having knit the short sleeves, I realised they’d be too tight for my chubby girl so decided to turn them into long sleeves. I increased by 2 stitches every 6 rows approx 10 times. They are a little long, so should last for a few more months. She does enjoy chewing the cuffs though!

The yarn is Rico Merino Aran, and I used nearly 3 balls in total. The yarn is very soft and good value for money. It is also holding up well with just a bit of fuzzing.

I really enjoyed knitting this cardigan – it came together quickly and will be a useful addition to the wardrobe over the winter. I love the texture of double moss stitch but would probably not want to make a bigger project than this as it did get a bit tedious.
