Cardigan Sweater<< All Articles
My name is Celeste. I am 82 years old and live in Brooklyn, New York. I made this cardigan sweater for my seven-year old grandniece, Brooke. It is knitted in parts: the ribbing first, then the stockinette stitch, the ski people on the sides, then the arms, and so on. I do not have a pattern as everything about knitting a sweater was taught to me at an early age. We did not need patterns back then – we learned by seeing older women knit and they taught me.
