Just a few photo’s of my finished cardigan, Gnarled Oak Cardigan by Alana Dakos in Coastal Knits, knitted in Wollmeise DK colourway Petit Poison Nr.5 Dark. I would say that the top photograph is the most accurate colour and even then it might just be a tad darker.
Its been on my needles for well over a year, I’ve enjoyed knitting it and I really am enjoying wearing it, its barely been off my back. The sleeves are just a tad too long, possibly, but I love them because they keep me toasty warm. I’m still sticking to my New Years resolutions, not to start anything new, three weeks in, I’m doing well.
And why this pattern, I fell in love with the oak leaves. Growing up with an Oak tree at the bottom of the garden it reminds me of home.
