The designer, herself requested THIS!!

This project was easy and straight forward. I fell in love with the concept of the wrap with basic cardi, quickly especially when I noticed the secure attachment of the two pieces! Chain stitch buttonholes adorned on each end of the wrap attach themselves to the front 3 buttons of the cardigan and to a hidden button on the left side of the sweater under the collar. Not only does that make for ease of wear, but also allows for sizing adjustments by altering the length or shape of the chain stitch buttonhole.

Thanks to tips here, the blister stitch came easy. I used a round needle for the 230 stitches for the wrap. p4tog is a fairly slow process but I switched to the Addi Turbo Lace sharp pointed needles, and the process hastened! What we go through to get a look we want! :)

Again, lots of photos as there are variations. I am definitely drawn to the idea of getting the biggest bang out of my buck.
