The Mont Blanc cardigan is now ready to wear. I really want to call this garment a “shirt-jack” since that is how it looks and fits. I made the sleeves a tiny bit wider than recommended, so I could wear a hefty shirt underneath. The front pockets are stitched as little tubes and attached to the inner front.
The back has a pleat that gives the cardigan more ease, but if I were to make it again, I would omit this part. It is maybe my least favorite feature of the garment, partially due to the tuck at the middle of the ridge. Instead of a pleat, I might have increased a little more across the back, and left the ridge uninterrupted across the shoulders.
The buttons are from a little shop in Seomun Market, where I find all kinds of great buttons and notions. I managed to find some that are almost an exact match to the color.
My next big garment make will be a tweedy wool poncho, using Rowan Felted Tweed yarn, that I hope to finish by Spring. I just received the yarn by mail, so I’m all set to get started during my winter break.
That’s it for today, but I’ll be back soon with a brand new amigurumi figure that I have almost finished. Hint – it’s a mischievous animal character from literature.
