FO : Aidez



Pattern: Aidez by Cirilia Rose
Yarn: Knit Picks wool of the Andes Bulky in Wallaby
Needles: 6mm / US 10
Size made: 40"


What a great knit. A real stunner. And I finally have mine!
The cable patterns were intuitive, the minimal shaping is simple yet effective and the result is just to die for. Before blocking it was way too tight, but the wet block gave it an amazing fit. I couldn’t be happier!


I really liked to work with the Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bulky, but if I was to knit it again, I would choose a fluffier, drapier yarn. I liked it, didn’t love it. Nevertheless the stitch definition is amazing… it depends on what you want as a result!

Such a classic. It looks great in that yarn!

p.s. love the fabric on the wall behind you - I've got that as my tablecloth!

Thanks!
How cool is that! It's my giant blocking board: when it's not in use, it's the perfect wall unit!

Aidez has been on my queue for ages and seeing yours reminds me how much I want to knit this cardigan. Great color choice and beautiful work.

I have this pattern but its all in American lingo! I have downloaded an abbreviation converter to help with most of the pattern but am stuck on how to correspond the right front to the left front to correspond with the placement of pattern stitches? Can anyone please help? Or is there a UK pattern that I can download anywhere?
