I have invested so much time in the great cardigan hunt.
It has been so frustrating. But I think I now know what I want.
I am quite keen for something with a collar. Either fitted or swinging. Can't decide. It has to be able to cope with the country silk that is in skeins all over my lounge room, waiting.
I got a bit excited about this.
It isn't too bad at all in a librarian kind of way (no offence Jodie!). I could change the collar to make it a bit more my style. I quite like the shaping and the detail along the bottom. It is Jo Sharp's Essential.
Then I looked at the pattern - would you believe it only goes up to a 95cm bust! I have my Grandma Ethel's bust line and I will only say it is substantially more than a waif like 95cm. I'm not at all interested in trying to resize this pattern at the moment. So I am back to the 'other option'.
The 'other option' will be a dull knit - that is the only thing holding me back.
But it will look pretty fine in deep green and I think it might just suit me.
And I do love a big luscious button.
This one has the enticing and romantic name 'Jacket with collar and set in sleeves'. Makes you just want to rush out and make one doesn't it?
Thanks for the suggestions - it did help me work out what I was attracted to.
