So Close

Here’s my Glory Days saddle-shoulder cardigan, following the general instructions in The Knitter’s Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters. I added a foldover collar, which I finished with an I-cord bind-off to match the body.

I was at a photo shoot and snapped a shot on a mannequin when everyone wasn’t looking. All that’s left is the zipper. I ordered one from Zipper Source but it will be a couple of weeks before it ships. I thought about ordering it earlier but I’m glad I didn’t — the I-cord edging tightened up the front opening and I would have ordered a zipper that was too long.

  1. Hi, Ann. I met you at the Spring Fling in Co and enjoyed your class quite a lot! You were knitting with our group on Saturday night and working on this sweater. It looks beautiful.
