Finished Ribby


Thank you BonneMarie for the great pattern! I went with the all over rib and used seashell pink in the highland peruvian wool. I'm pretty happy with my end result, I was getting a bit frustrated with the zipper and my mother suggested I have a seamstress do it for me. Best advice ever, definately worth the few dollars she charged. You may notice on the arms I have a panel of stockinette, that's because I didn't read the part in the sleeve pattern that said to work the the rib pattern into the increases, it fits fine and its not as snug as I thought.

Your ribby looks great!
I actually like the idea of a stockinette panel in the sleeves, because I don't like really tight fitting sleeves. I was considering putting a panel down the middle, but I like yours :)

lcord, that ribby is beautiful. The shell pink color is so feminine and soft and flattering!

Ok... I hadn't thought I'd like the all-over ribbed version, but you've changed my mind. It looks great!

Hmmm... interesting idea re: the seamstress... I wouldn't have thought of that, and it might just make the difference between having a finished sweater and just living with a mostly finished sweater.

Gorgeous cardi! I do believe I'll take my cardi to a seamstress when I'm done too...was already tossing with that idea...as I can't sew well. Thanks for reminding me it's a good idea!

Fabulous Cardi! I really like the all-ribbed version. I bought some more Peruvian Highland from elann and might just have to make the next one ribbed. And good idea about the zipper!

Your ribby is beautiful. I really love the color. What length is the zipper? This is the first one I've seen that goes all the way to the top. Very nice.

I did the same thing on my increases for the sleeves. I think I like it though!
