Hello, my name is Dionne and I have been crafting for a very long time. As a very young child my mother tried to teach me to knit, it was a disaster. However, it must have sparked an interest in making things and, partly to prove that I was not totally useless and partly because I really wanted to make things, I taught myself to crochet. Over the years I have developed a love of cross stitch and all types of paper craft ..... I eventually even taught myself to knit.

I am married to a very understanding man, thank goodness, because I spend all my time either crafting, thinking about crafting or talking about crafting. I am hopeless at housework and dinner is often late!

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Chunky Blue Cardigan

My youngest niece has been having a bit of a growing spurt and has outgrown all of the cardigans I had previously made for her.  I love knitting for her as she loves everything I make for her - mind you, she is a bit of a clotheshorse.

This cardigan is made in King Cole Cherish Double Knit.  The pattern is one I obtained from ebay, no make or number I am afraid.

A close-up, so you can see the pattern better - I'm not sure it helps!

I'll try to be back again tomorrow.



  1. It's a beautiful pattern and love the pale blue-much nicer than shop bought and warmer

    1. You should see her Carol. I always wrap her cardigans, when she unwraps them she dances around the room so everyone can admire her new cardigan. Mind you she is only 5!

      That Cherished yarn is lovely and soft and knits up a treat.
