I'm currently working on the Indigo Banded Cardigan from the Fall 09 Knitscene. This issue has some great patterns in it and while i usually design my own I have decided that I need to branch out and try some new construction and learn some new technique instead of doing the tired old top down seamless sweater on circs.

This Cardigan has some simple fair isle in the waits that was easy and looks great knit up. I've done fair isle in the past, but that was a few years ago that I tried my hand at that. This time around I was careful not to pull my floats too tight, so overall i think my tension was better than when i first tried this style of knitting.

That fair isle looks great!

That looks wonderful! But how do you do the pattern? My grandma tried to teach me to knit many years ago. I couldn't even knit a straight scarf. Had to give up!

I like that pattern! Learning new techniques is always fun and it gives us a bit of a challenge too! Thanks for sharing!
