A Little Late

Sue spent quite some time making this  all hand spun cardigan for son in-law John's birthday. Due to a number of factors he was handed it a little late.

The wool for this cardigan originally came from John's step mother's stash of fibre and it turned out to be very suitable for the purpose.

The cardigan is knitted in a basket weave looking stitch pattern and was worked in one piece to under the arms. The sleeves were knitted separately and a gusset was worked under the arm for more flexibility then all three pieces were worked together to the neckline.   It was then a race to find buttons to suit.
