for this cardigan I used the pattern of my T-shirt with long sleves. As always, something went wrong :-( the closing is on the right side. The asymetric collar happened by accident but makes this basic model a little bit different. I do not realy like the fabric, but it was a good exersise to work with my coverlock. In the end, it is wearable.

    I like it very much, though I agree with you: the collar makes a weird effect. However, wearing it open, people shouldn’t realize and as long as you feel comfy who cares about people!

    I really like this cardigan! And I think your collar mistake turned out for the best – it’s more interesting this way :)

    Don’t tell anyone the collar was a mistake! It’s very much your style so run with it. The design Gods were working through you. I like it, but I can see the fabric was probably a challenge. Another hob well done by martin!

      thank you very much for your comment! :-) actualy, the collar is the best thing of the cardigan. But to make button holes in knit fabric is horror!!! Again, I have learned a lot.
      btw, the design gods are fare away at the moment :-)
