My stripey cardigan is finished!
I’d been eyeing this pattern for a long time. It’s so cute in the pattern photos but in many of the finished projects it looks like the collar is too wide, too high at the front but too low at the back. Short rows to the rescue! My modifications didn’t go exactly as I’d hoped but I love the result anyway. It's my new favorite stripey cardigan.
