I finally finished my B-Side Cardigan! And just in time to find the perfect buttons for it at SAFF! I bought a few different buttons to try – a couple vintage ones and also some silver norwegian style ones as well. I think the silver ones were perfect!
Pattern: B-Side Cardigan
Yarn: Bugga! from Sanguine Gryphon in color Polyphemus Moth (a cashmere/merino/nylon blend that is just scrumptious!)
Size made: 36
Started: June 20, 2010
Finished: October 25, 2010
I love the sailor-style collar!
Modifications: No major modifications to this – I made the sleeves longer and did them in the round instead of flat with seams, and I made the body longer as well, but that’s about it. The yarn was wonderful to work with – it’s a perfect yarn for a sweater. It was so soft and squishy. After blocking the yarn got even softer, if you can believe that!
Overall I am extremely happy with how it turned out! If it wasn’t so hot out today I’d be wearing it right now!
