Butternut Aidez Completed.

So here is the Butternut (or Butterbutt) Aidez, in all her wooly glory. I finished it on Tuesday, actually, but you know, I needed to get a photo shoot and all that jazz in, so without further ado…

But maybe the sunlight is too bright here.

Yep, definitely too bright!

Come walk with me…over here, to the shade.

Ah, much better.

Sleeve detailing.

Back detail (and as an added bonus you get to see how crooked my back is!)

I feel compelled to tell you all now that this is not meant to be a maternity cardigan, and I didn’t knit it to be worn during pregnancy, so I am hoping the fit will be a bit… better by the fall. When I don’t have a seven month baby belly in the way.

But that being said, I am absolutely THRILLED with this sweater. I love it. And it wasn’t even as hard as I thought it would be. The pattern and directions were wonderful and I can’t praise the designer highly enough. This was a joy to knit and wearing it around town today I got lots of compliments!

So, if anyone is interested, I raveled it here, and here is the link to the pattern, should anyone want to attempt their OWN Aidez. (And you really should.. it’s so fun, we could start a club!)

  1. OMG! That turned absolutely gorgeous! Ok, it’s decided. I HAVE to make this sweater now! Thanks for the inspiration:)

  2. When I have more knitting skills and time (don’t know if that day will ever come) I would love to knit this, I love the pattern!! 🙂

  3. WOW! I Love it. Also, as soon as I pulled this up Ezra got super excited pointed to the screen and said with exclaim “Adi!” Which is obviously Ali in little dude speak. Was the yarn expensive? And any other patterns she has up?

  4. Erika, I love that he knows my name, now. That’s really exciting 🙂 and Grace, I guess it’s all how you count the months… I’m 27 1/2 weeks, and 28 divided by 4 is 7…. So who knows. I never really understood how they counted the months. It’s so confusing!!

  5. Oh! And rik, it used just under two skeins of cascade Eco, so it wasn’t very pricy! Yours would probably only use up 1 and a half, since yours would be a small instead of large.

  6. Maybe, just maybe, this would tempt me to knit something other than a scarf for myself. Two skeins of yarn is a reasonable investment, although I’m thinking it would take me like five months to finish. 🙂

  7. wow, Ali! Its lovely! I can’t believe you were ever questioning if you should knit this up. It’s perfect! I’ll take one in blue, please! 🙂

  8. That is REALLY beautiful Ali! I love it. I might actually *think* about *maybe* doing one myself. Maybe.

  9. Oh you really should. It’s knit up with thick yarn and on big needles and doesn’t take nearly as much time as you’d think. It’s a fun knit, too.

  10. Lovely! And you can make mine in green. =)

    How long would you guess it took to make?

    It’s super flattering, both in color and style. It’s a pattern worth keeping!

  11. It took me about two weeks, knitting a bit here and there… it’s worsted weight and knit on size 10 needles, so it goes pretty fast.
