The cotton fabric I just couldn’t let go of…

After my first blog post, I wasn’t ready to let go of this cotton fabric with its feather design. I wanted to experiment with it a bit more and knit something more “feathery”.

I already had the cotton, mopani silk, linen, wool, bamboo and mohair yarn that I used in the tunic I had knitted previously. Add some eyelash yarn and mother-of-pearl buttons to the mix and violà – a cardigan in soft blues is born.

File 2015-09-08, 12 11 12 PMI embroidered on the fabric and added crochet granny blocks in cotton and bamboo. This forms a focal point, running from front to back on one side of the cardigan.

To compare it with the tunic I knitted using the same fabric, look here.
