I don't usually take any crafting to do when we go on holiday, but this time I did pack some knitting, and I'm so glad I did because this holiday was all about taking it easy and my knitting gave me something else to do when I wanted a break from reading.
I had already completed one of the In Threes cardigans for Bonnie and I loved knitting it so much that found some more yarn from my stash to take with me and made another two.
The pattern calls for worsted weight yarn but I followed other recommendations on Ravelry and used DK yarn and knitted a bigger size.
This is Stylecraft Bambino yarn in duck egg, it's much nicer than the washed out colour it's coming up on here
This one is knitted in a King Cole Yarn
And the third one, which is in a larger size is knitted in a lovely grey Woman's Institute yarn.
I put the button holes on the garter stitch section on this one and I think it looks much better that way.
The cardigan is knit top down so no seaming to be done.
Where the side seaming would be there is a little garter stitch detail, which I think looks quite nice.
I'm so happy with how these came out and that I was able to knit them from yarn I already had, bonus!
I can see me knitting more of these for Bonnie over the next few years, it such a great pattern!
You can find the In Threes Pattern on Ravelry, it's not a free pattern, but it's good value for money because you get many different sizes.
See you soon
