Karen Cardigan in double knit wool
The construction is really simple, and it was done within a day. However, I had trouble with the hemming part. I tried the double needle to accomplish the coverstitch, but the tension got tricky. So after one year of hiatus, and after purchasing a serger, I roll-hemmed all the edges and voila~
The double knit is not as fluid as jersey knit, so the draping is not what I expected, but it is still stylish and warm.
