FO: Summery Girly Cardigan

This cardigan is fast becoming a firm favourite, I’ve had quite a few orders for it, you can read about it here and here. But this is the first one I’ve knitted with cotton yarn, DROPS Safran to be precise.

I really do love this pattern, it’s so easy to knit as it’s garter stitch all the way with 14 stitches of moss stitch on each side for the front bands. I do always seem to forget the button holes and again when I was knitting this. So I just had to go back a few lines and then knit it up again with the button holes included this time.

And the buttons are curtesy of Textilegarden. I love them and I’ve just ordered a whole new lot, you’ll see them tomorrow in my seven little moments post.

And of course you can see that I added a nice crochet border, with a lovely contrasting deep red/purple. I’m going to call it plum?

So, we’ll see if and when I get another order for this same cardigan.
