My last post was about Tinder, a cardigan designed by Jared Flood from his collection BT Fall 2011. Today I finished it. It took a while but I've also been knitting other things and I've had periods without knitting at all.
The yarn is Shelter from Brooklyn Tweed - same as the pattern calls for - and it's such a lovely yarn. Light and loosely spun.
As you can see I'm expecting a baby but the A-line of the cardigan means that I can still button it.
I love the waffle stitch pattern and am very satisfied with the buttons which I found after a search in several shops. Why is it always so hard to find the right buttons for finished knits...
I like the details such as the raglan yoke and the collar. This cardigan will be used a lot - for sure.
