Show Us Your Wanda Nells!

I'm so excited about this post, because I have loved seeing what knitters do with the Wanda Nell Cardigan pattern. The creativity and ingenuity of knitters never fails to fascinate me!

I have added in links to each knitter's project page for you Ravelry folks.

First up is cheekybeak on Ravelry who knit her sweet pink cardigan with two shades of pink and one of light sage green. All the yarns were from Grant Creek Yarns. I love it, Kirsty!

 Then we have Nathalie's Wanda Nell, which she knit with Madeline Tosh 80/10/10 fingering in the Briar colorway and she made it a cropped sweater to fit over a sweet dress. Great idea!

 Mara had all kinds of fun with the Wanda Nell. She made it long-sleeved and with an interesting cuff! She also made it tonal by using different yarns in each section lengthwise. She edged all the fun with a good neutral gray. Well done!

This was Karen's second Wanda Nell. She says she loved it so much that she cast on another one! She had the same problem as I did. This one is simply knit with a lovely orange in Posh Yarn Martha Sock and another of Zauberball Crazy in the Riverbed colorway. Great yarn choices!

Such a lovely blue Wanda Nell here by Raelene. She used The Wool Company's Utiku Baby 4-ply in the aqua colorway. Raelene also wants to make another! Boy, do I love to hear that.

Tabitha knit her Wanda Nell with Radiant Yarnworks' Seaweed colorway and edged it in their Oceanic. She also made some modifications because of gauge issues and it looks like it's a great fit!

Arlene made her WN Cardi with Alicia Goes Around Plush Lace in the intriguing Suit and Florsheims colorway and edged in Knit Picks Gloss Fingering in the Timber colorway. It looks so nice on you, Arlene! Also love the glass buttons!

Kathy made this Wanda Nell for her daughter, and does she look happy with it! It was knit with Grant Creek Yarns Cushy Merino 2-ply in Deep Blue Sea--a great match for Amanda's lovely red hair! Again, those are some great buttons!

Christina used Cherry Tree Hill Yarn Supersock in Dove and edged it with Zwerger Yarn Opal Uni Solid 4-ply in turquoise. So pretty! She says she would have made the body and sleeves longer but was working with limited yarn. This is the beauty of the Wanda Nell--you have those options!

Tanya made her Wanda Nell into a cropped sweater like Nathalie, but with longer sleeves. She used Madelinetosh 80/10/10 Fingering in Brothers Grimm especially to wear with her gorgeous Anthropologie dress. 

I love all these versions of the Wanda Nell Cardigan

Don't forget that the pattern is 30% off through August 31. Try it for yourself!
