Marion front 2

I still can’t find my tripod so any photos depend on the Hubbinator to play photographer. We’re getting into a better swing of taking pictures and it definitely helps when he likes what I’m wearing.

This is Andi Satterlund’s Marion cardi pattern. Buy her pattern on Ravelry and read her blog post when she released Marion, shortly after graduating college!

I got inspired by SewBusyLizzy posting pictures of her in progress Marion on Twitter. You can see her gorgeous Marion with one of her awesome Cambie dresses. I’ll wear my Marion with a dress at some point. It’s a perfect combination.



I always have issues with baggy backs so I cast on for the Medium size at the back neck edge and the Large for the front. I think it worked. The beauty of knitting is that it’s like sewing with knits. It’s pretty forgiving. I just kept knitting, keeping in mind that I’d have to look at both sizes for the beginning. I didn’t plan it out at the start besides thinking, I should really cast on a smaller size at the back.


I’m in love with the sleeves. You start knitting the sleeve cap in short rows and then do a fast decrease in the underarm giving you a very close fit around the armscye which I prefer. As you can see, I got a nice close fit in the shoulders and high bust while still having room for the rest of me. 🙂

I’m definitely going to knit more of Andi’s patterns. Any knitters reading this?

Here’s my Ravelry project page for Marion in case you’re on there.
