I’ve fallen in love with burdastyle’s Esther cardigan and made two last week in a mad Esther-frenzy (I will post my second one shortly; a snow blizzard interrupted our photo shoot!). It’s an incredibly satisfying (read: easy and fun) project — it only took me about 2 hours total and there it was, a lovely, cozy cardigan that I can’t stop wearing. I mixed knit (the striped part) and woven (the collar) and was scared to do so having had bad experiences in the past, but it seems the experiment came off just fine and Esther is good for mixing it up.
Knit (striped cotton fabric and a felt-like fabric for the cuffs) and a wool-blend in burgundy/white.
