Non-folding fold-back front cardigan
I recently finished this cardigan. It's from the Tahki Yarns spring/summer 2007 designs, and is called a fold-back front cardigan. The folding back did not happen -- it looked really droopy that way. However, I discovered that I could fasten it with a shawl pin on the front band, and it looks swell.
The yarn is Gerifil Spaghetti, which is a funky yarn that does not give even stitches. It does have nice shiny bits in it which makes it interesting, and the cardigan holds its ribbing really well for a close fit.
The only thing I did differently was to use a twisted ribbing on the sleeve openings.
