Comments: Presenting my brand new Tapestry cardigan!
It's beautiful! The buttons work incredibly well with it, and it definitely looks classy and suitable for work, (I seem to remember you posting that you were worried that it might not be), as well as just being a fab cardie.Posted by TheKnittingBee.
It's wonderful! Are you planning on offering the pattern in other sizes? I agree, the buttons are fantastic.
It's a great design! I love the contrast of the body with the edgings.Posted by monica.
The edging is truly exquisite. I love the 3/4 length sleeves! Well done!Posted by Joy.
i think it should be named "yummy pink goodness from jen". no? ;)Posted by carolyn.
Lovely! The edging works really well, especially the little ruffles on it. I think it needs something raspberry-ish for a name :)Posted by Bryony.
It's very, very pretty and that Tapestry yarn looks so interesting! I like the edging too!Posted by lyn.
What a lovely cardi - well done. I love the edging and 3/4 sleeves are my favourite!Posted by Ali.
Very nice cardigan. Wish you good luck with new patterns.
great job, Jen! You're right, the relatively simple design allows you to show off the pretty yarn very nicely. I like the details - the little peplum, the big buttons, and the sleeve cuffs.Posted by Elizabeth.
Great job, Jen! I think this is my favorite of your designs. The edging definitely makes the sweater! And great button choice.Posted by Kelly.
hurrah for finishing it - and I love it! The style and shaping are both beautiful, and I wish I could afford enough of that yarn for a cardi myself!
As for names, well, the cardigan reminds me of sugar-dusted deserts; I think it's the shine of the yarn and the reflection of the light. Like raspberry torte, or sugared almonds. Like a little halo of icing sugar. (Oh dear, I've somehow got xmas baking on the brain. Marzipan? Nougart? Chocolate mice?)Posted by anushka.
I love it, especially the edgings! Great job, wear it proudly!Posted by Johanna.
Ooh, I love the stripes going the opposite directions on the edgings!Posted by Tamar.
Wow! Super cute! I adore that cardie, you're right--a fussy stitch pattern would have warred with those stripes. Good marriage of yarn to design.Posted by Silvia.
Hot design!! Well done.Posted by NORA.
Yay!! You did great work on this, your design suits the yars perfectly. You definitely should feel proud and happy!Posted by Michelle.
It looks great! Fantastic use of self-striping yarn in a garment.Posted by Jennifer.
