Cardigan Almost Finished

I have just about finished the basket stitch cardigan, I just need to sew on the buttons and give it a quick wash:

Basket Stitch Cardigan

It feels a little bit stiff at the moment but I’m sure once it’s been washed it will soften up.

I had a look in my button box and found seven green buttons which would have been ideal but they were too big to go through the buttonholes. Typical! I think I’ll probably end up using the five smaller green buttons I found along with a couple of clear ones. I could always push the boat out and actually buy some but that wouldn’t be like me at all, would it?

Talk to you later,

    The cardigan is really nice, are you planning to write more about how you made it, or do a tutorial? Which machine did you make this on?
