Go Go Gryffindor!

Recently, I've been trying to clear out some of the projects on my looooooong list of things to make. This has involved finishing up half finished projects as well as doing some of the faster projects of things that I've been missing in my closet for a while now. The latter also crosses into finding tried and true knitting patterns that I can modify and change to suit my needs.

Which brings me to my Gryffindor Cardigan! I managed to finish this cardigan in just 5 weeks (Most of the time it takes me three months)! I'm really happy with how it turned out and that the pattern is simple enough to add things like inertia. Plus, it means I have a red cardigan!
Win, win, win!

 This one probably would have taken longer had I not decided to enter it into the Red Hill Show. My lovely grandparents, who live near there, offered to turn it in for me today and it gets judged tomorrow. I'm hoping to go to the show on Saturday if I can get off work.

I also entered in a dress that I had been working on (another "to finish" project) but
 I didn't get time to take photos before I sent it off.

Get the pattern here!
All of my modifications are noted here.


  1. I wish I had the patience to knit something as nice that, it's like a vintage inspired Weasley jumper! Fashion fandom combinations are one of my favourite things, I hope it does well in the competition!

  2. Thank you so much! Knitting really felt like something I had to level up patience in. Haha that's exactly how I feel about this cardigan. Good old Weasley jumpers. Fashion fandom combos are one of my favourites too. Thank you!
