I finished knitting this in August 2010 and it’s been waiting and waiting and waiting for buttons and poppers ever since. Finally sorted it all out and it’s the perfect warm cardigan for this crazy chilly May.
The threaded ribbon is a really cute detail, although the ribbon I’ve used isn’t stretchy so it pulled slightly uncomfortably and needs to be replaced with something with a little more give.
Black knitting doesn’t photograph very well so the cute pockets in the front don’t show up.
The pattern is Salem Hooded Jacket from New England Knits. This is the second successful cardigan I’ve knitted from the book and I would heartily recommend it.
