Having received this wool from my SIL in February, and kept it in the bag till we went to Cornerstones after Easter, I was determined to get the cardi made up promptly, and not have it hanging around!
The pattern was remarkably easy [even the picking up the collar stitches round the neckline worked better than I’d expected] and the single button – my antiqued Union Jack painted by Steph– worked superbly. The button colours went well with the yarn.
No I am not going to pose with a feather in my hair! I like the ‘casual’ feel of this cardi, and I think it will be a good summer cover up with teeshirt and jeans. The yarn was lovely to knit with, and on the large needles, the project grew very fast.
