Notes

The yoke was completed following the lovely Garnstudio Dune Cardigan in Noro Flower Bed 1366.
I then connected the Rowan Felted Tweed (iris) to knit the sleeves and body top down.

I designed the Iris and mountains’ pattern using DK9 software. Please feel free to use for your projects if you like it! Not for commercial purposes please.

Iris blossoms were knit using Isager Tweed yarn. For the grass/ flower stems, I used Rowan Felted Tweed Pine; same yarn for mountains in the front panels.
Mountains on the back were knitted with Noro Flower Bed 1366.

The fabric buttons travelled all the way to New Zealand from a small boutique in Paris, from an artist found on Etsy.
