Nordic Mart

Used way more than called for at gauge. Of stock but saved by kind Trina, who had some for sale. Ran out again picking up sts for the i-cord trim so used some fingering stash held double. This is a super late gift!

Applied i-cord really gives it a more finished look: For a neat edge in garter stitch to pick up later, k to last st, bring yarn to front, slip the last stitch, turn. When finished assembling, pick up and knit all edges and knit an applied i-cord trim.

Buttons from Mercerie Saint-Pierre in Paris.

Gave the tassel a loop around the threads for a neater look.
