A surprise toile of the Andrew cardigan for the man in my life.
Now, he’s seen the toile he gets to choose the fabric for the proper version. The colour scheme has been a hit. The contrast front panel is a bit of fun and the sleeves and back are the reverse side of that check.
It is an easy pattern. And I am really happy with how the fit worked out after I guessed a size 50. A refinement to be made for the final is to widen the front facing – the buttonhole runs off the edge of the current facing width.
It is much harder to find a decent range of ribbing… if you are in Sydney, the best by far (that I have found) is The Fabric Store. And they are 30% off everything at the mo’!
This piece marks the debut of the mens label “Handsome” :P
