Fold-back placket cardigan

I'm trying to finish up this fold-back cardigan by Irina Poludnenko, from the Tahki yarns spring/summer 2007 patterns. The yarn is Gerifil Spaghetti, with size 5 needles. This yarn is kind of funky. It's very springy and the rib pattern stays tightly ribbed. Also, the 25% polyamid (essentially plastic) content gives it little shiny bits, but the inconsistent bend ratio makes the stitches uneven. I'ved decided to accept the uneven stitches -- it's sort of like wearing linen where you just go with the wrinkles.
