Vignette: My First Sweater

I've finished my first (adult) sweater!  I fell in love with this Vignette pattern by Amy Herzog as soon as I saw it in Knitty.  She describes it as "curvy and just a touch retro" and I totally agree.

I love the classic feel of the pattern, but that it also has the fun, but easy to remember, lace and rib pattern on the front as well as along the shoulder.

If you want more of the "knitting gritty" you can find it in my Ravelry project notes.  I'm so excited to have a new cardigan for work and to take a huge chunk out of my yarn stash!

Before I started this project, I made this super simple row counter bracelet to help keep track of repeats.  It's the best row counter I've ever tried.

As happy as I am to have this sweater finished, I'm itching to cast on something new!  I'm thinking about a featherweight shawl in fuzzy mohair.


  1. I don't knit but I love your work... it reminds me of the cardigan that I've crocheted for my daughter way back in 2010 which have been neglected...You make me want to finish mine,thank you! It looks beautiful on you:)

  2. Ellen, that is one amazing sweater! What a great knitter you are! I love the cute little buttons, too. The bracelet row counter is so creative and funky. You are a star!

  3. Thanks for the link to the row counter bracelet.

    I knit, but I've never made a sweater for myself. Yours is gorgeous. Nice job!

  4. found you through Sew Many Ways. Hi Friend! Love the cardi. I especially covet the green flower buttons - beautiful. But I want more info on the bracelet. :) g

  5. You did such a beautiful job! Love your sweater. The green buttons are so fun!
