The Florist’s Cardigan

Finally something new to show here! Also, since I promised to put up pictures as soon as possible, I’m posting those of the separate pieces of the cardigan now, even though the entire project has been finished for several days, maybe even weeks, now and I just haven’t had time yet to take decent pics of the cardigan… I’ve been wearing it quite a lot though 😉

So, in this gallery you find all the pieces as they were before I sewed them together and added some plain mother-of-pearl buttons on the front and at the pockets, as well. As I was knitting, I changed some minor things to adapt the pattern to my measurements, and I am very pleased by the way the waistline sits in exactly the right place (for once) and the sleeves are long enough (for once), too. All in all teh pattern was pretty good, though, excellent fit in the shoulders. The only thing I will work on a bit when (not if) I’ll make another one of these, are the sleeves, which could be a little tighter around the elbow. The increase as described in the pattern start too far down the sleeve, for me at least, though the width is just fine around the shoulder and the upper arm itself.

I will add more pictures once I can get to my dressmaking model without freezing to death…
