FO: Malabrigo Abalone


Project: Abalone by Beata Jezek
Yarn: Malabrigo Worsted in Polar Morn
Needles: US8

I am so proud of this cardigan! I've already worn it a few times and it is so nice and cozy. I do worry a little bit about the pilling but so far it doesn't seem too bad. I made quite a few modifications to the pattern so that it covers more in the front, all of which are recorded on my project page. I really loved how simple this pattern was and how easy it was to modify. This is the first project that I've done major modifications to and it didn't end up in a complete disaster - yay!

Hello. Starting the Abalone can I ask did you slip 1 as if to pearl or knit. Also how did you do you make 1. My edges are looking really bad.

Thanks for input

Hi Gwynna!

I slipped 1 to purl, but I don't think it will make much of difference as you're going to pick up those stitches later for the border. I made 1 the way the pattern suggests, the backwards loop method, and it does leave some holes but the garter border covers some of it if you're worried about it looking messy. Hope that helps :)
