Weekend Retreat Cardigan Reviewed by Joyce Cureau on 2010-07-16 ****
I have just finished making this shrug for the second time.
It is really a nice pattern, but I think too difficult for a beginning knitter. The stockinette and ribbing sections are easy, but the assembling of the sections is tricky.

I just finished making this shrug in black and I'm pleased with the results. I liked that there was almost no seams to sew. I'm going to make it again, but this time will use a 36" circular needle. When I reached the maximum number of stitches, the 29" needle crowded the work.

I made this in the recycled cotton for my daughter in law and it came out beautiful. I did put a button at the top. Even though I knit to gauge, it took less yarn than indicated.

I really enjoyed making this cardi. The instructions were well written and the yarn was a pleasure to work with. I would make another.

I just finished my second Retreat Cardigan, and I love the pattern, but my only problem with it was the front edges keep flopping to the inside. I tried blocking it, and crocheting the front edges, and the ribbing, but it still curl inward.

I'm almost finished with this project, it's taken about a week. this cardi is cute and really easy to make, and I will probably be making more!

Hi, I've just completed my 2nd Weekend Retreat Cardi Pattern No 81016AD and I too will be knitting some for gifts, as so quite and easy and a very handy little top I used to hate knitting with circular needles but found this one really easy and now I'm a convert to use circular needles again and again. I found knitting into back of knit stitch and doing purl as per usual gave a nice textured pattern and seemed to not stretch as did my 1st attempt. I come from Australia and so had to guess at how much material to buy I ended up using round about 7x50gm balls of a cotton over here which I thought would be about 8 ply I used No5 circular needle and No 8 to knit the edges around neck/sleeve/and bottom edge I also found casting off in rib gave it a neater edge and I put a buttonhole in righthand side of front ribbing and it gives a good firm fit around the top. When you put it on to wear you have to adjust the neckline to make sure it sits correctly. Happy knitting everyone Do try this little Cardi it is very stylish,comfortable to wear and you will get many compliments when you wear it.Robyn from South Coast NSW Australia
