The beautiful Wrenna

Here is my long awaited Wrenna a really beautiful knit very quick and super warm, I did not add the lace closure as suggested as it didn't flatter my ample bosom so instead decided I would buy a nice shawl pin, but I was so anxious to show it off I use a hair clip to take the photos, take a look let me know what you think. I'm off to bed for a few minutes off knitting it's been a fun day of throwing snow balls at the neighbours kids and DH. :)

Pattern Wrenna: Leather-laced cardigan by Kristeen Griffin-Grimes Craft
Size L
Needle US 15 / 10.0 mm and US 17 / 12.75 mm and US 11 / 8.0 mm
Yarn Sirdar Bigga
Amt Used 6 skeins = 264.0 yards

Started November 20 2009
Completed November 23 2009

A really lovely pattern. After I deciphered row 14 it was a breeze. I decided to make it a few sizes smaller after reading about the stretch factor I think I could have gone down to the second size but it still fits well :). Overall it took about 14 hours to complete over 3 days :) Used a 8mm needle to finish the sleeve and did 2 rows of rib instead of 1.

Took a million pics of this and still can’t get it right:( it realty is lovely despite my pics.

I am going to make another in a bulky cotton for Summer :)



  1. It came out beautifully ! It amazes me how all of the really big needle patterns take so little yarn. It's a good thing.

  2. it's gorgeous♥ I think it looks like hearts, so it's perfect for Valentines Day♥

  3. That's very pretty - and as a fellow generously bosomed girl I'm grateful for the tip!

  4. Truely lovely. I love the way it turned out...a quick question, How did you join new balls of yarn?

  5. Hi- I love your Wrenna.I think its gorgeous too and agree with cici.

  6. The Wrenna is beautiful! The fact that it is a quick knit is wonderful!
