I am still noodling away on the projects and have just about reached the end of the Aidez pattern.
However, now that I have tried it on I am thinking of adding a collar and front bands to make it a bit more winter friendly. I am doing this for 2 reasons, one is so that it will close (even though the pattern, as written, has it open at the front), the other is because I just don’t like the look of the front edge as is:
It is all wibbly/wobbly and feels unfinished to me.
Having watched a Fibrestory.tv interview with Cirilia Rose (what an amazing name!), the designer, I now understand why – the pattern was never finished the way she had planned it as she ran out of time for a print deadline! That makes total sense.
It was funny listening her tell the story and describe the cardigan the way she’d meant it to look… and it was pretty much as I was envisioning it in my head and trying to figure out how to modify!
I want to add thick bands along the front and a floppy fold over collar that can be buttoned up or left flopped open. Only now I have to figure out how to knit this!
Should be interesting.
