Hitofude Cardigan in Voolenvine Yarn

Hi there!  I've had this little sweater, the Hitofude Cardigan by Hiroko Fukatsu, finished for about a month now, and I've been wearing it.  It is one of those throw-on pieces that works with lots of different dresses and pants and jeans.  
 The construction is very fun and unique and leaves you with no sewing of seams - just weave in the ends, block, and you're finished!
 My only regret with this sweater is that I didn't alternate between the two hand painted skeins of yarn, so you can see where one skein ends and the next begins, especially on the back, but it's not a big deal.
 I would love to make more of these little cardigans.  The lace pattern was easy to remember, and the shaping provided enough interest to keep it from ever being boring.  The yarn is Voolenvine Yarns Wolke base in a Valentine's Day colorway called Lady Godiva.
I shortened the sleeves on this first version, but I'd love to try different sleeve lengths, and I think this would be great in a cotton or linen blend yarn to really take advantage of the airy lace.  


  1. Jenny, beautiful cardigan! I so envy your amazing knitting skills.

  2. One day, I will talk myself into knitting whole garments and not just scarves. Probably sometime around when I talk myself into lessons. This is truly beautiful- an inspiration!

    1. You can do it! As far as lace garments go, this knit up really fast.

  3. What a cute little Cardi Jenny! You're right it will go with just about everything! I must say, your stools look professionally done! Great job for you and the hubby!

  4. This is adorable! I love the color, too, and for this untrained eye, that "end of one skein, beginning of the other" is invisible!! :-)
