Notes

Unrecognizable Bibi - a winter version. Made it longer, looser, with long sleeves, pockets and lot of positive ease. Good basic cardigan pattern with the best gauge (23 st in 10 cm). You can use this pattern as a simple sweater base and make a cardigan of your dreams with some bigger or smaller modifications added. Love that 3x2 rib. It’s Kim’s signature.

Made bust darts (2 short rows, 4 rows in total, 4 cm below armhole, 5 and 7 cm from the side seam).

Made one design element I want to share:

played a little bit with color transitions in the front to have equally changing stripes of different colors on both front sides. That allowed me to put buttons of two different colors (blue and cream) matching those color stripes (1st, 3rd, 7th, 8th, 10th, 11th pictures).


I want to thank the owner of LYS “Mezgimo zona” in Vilnius helping me to find matching yarns for my sky blue shorts which I brought with myself to the shop this August. And that was not an easy task to do. :)
