The customer that ordered loads of things for her son also ordered a cardigan for herself. It’s funny actually, this is the cardigan I knitted for a very good friend of mine (I still have to post about it) only a month before this customer ordered the exact same one.
It’s this DROPS pattern, which looks great. I knitted this one with the double moss stitch for the sleeves, the collar and the front bands.
I used DROPS Alaska yarn for it and ordered these buttons from TextileGarden specifically for it.
I have to say again how much I love the DROPS patterns, especially as most of the patterns try and keep sewing up to an absolute minimum. This was the case with this one as well, there was only minimal sewing up under the sleeves.
And the collar with the double moss stitch looks lovely too. My customer really loved the cardigan and told me that it keeps her warm and cosy.
