Pattern: Tess, by Kim Hargreaves
Yarn: Rowan Big Wool, in Mulberry
Modifications: I added an extra couple of inches to the sleeves, and only made one buttonhole. I think this shape of cardigan falls best on my shape when it is just fastened at the top. It also meant that I could use this gorgeous vintage Dixie Nichols button, which has been waiting for a suitable project.
Notes: This is a wonderfully cosy cardigan, which I have worn loads since finishing. To be honest though, I don’t think it is the most amazingly flattering garment for me. The bulky wool, and the boxy shape do make me look rather more bulky and boxy than I actually am. But it is lovely to wear on these chilly autumn days.
