Den Haag, Nether...
I bought this fabric very cheaply a couple of months ago (3 metres of it) but didn’t really know what it was or what to do with it. I made a Sarah with it, which I didn’t really like but taught me a thing or two about this stuff. It’s not synthetic, as I thought, it’s actually a cooked wool knit. Which means it doesn’t fray. I used that quality a lot in making this cardigan. I made the design from my block as if designing for a woven fabric (this stuff stretches, but not crazily and it is quite bulky) but didn’t use a lining and only facings at center front and the collar. The edges were all left raw and only finished by stay stitching. I moved the sleeve seam from under the arm to the top of the sleeve so I could cut the bottom of the sleeve up on the outside.
