a real cardigan that is!
Amazed myself that I made this & chuffed to bits with the result.
The yarn (Madeline Tosh Merino Light in Onyx) is beautiful & so so soft and the pattern (Ochre – Okrankeltainen jakku by Veera Valimaki) was a joy to knit, with lovely little details in the eyelets & sleeve gathers.
Pattern recommends adding a hook & eye fastening but I skipped adding that preferring to use a brooch should I want to wear it wrapped across.
Though I like the drapey open look too.I was super nervous when it came to blocking the finished piece but found a good tutorial here & can’t express how grateful I was to my gifted blocking wires (thanks Fi! x). Blocking truly is a bit of a magical process.
One all round happy knitter here!
