My Lush and Lacy cardigan – EDIT BETTER PICS!

EDIT:

~~

Deux photos de plus, prises à la lumière du jour cette fois, pour vous montrer en particulier la dentelle du dos et l’effet froncé, qui fait tout le charme de ce modèle à mon avis:

Here are two more pics that show the actual color AND the lace work and the peplum on the back, which is really one of the best features of this cardigan!

Et voilàaaaa, abracadabra, mon gilet secret! Photos moyennes mais bon, je suis impatiente de vous montrer! Il s’agit du gilet Lush and Lacy de Sweaterbabe, qu’on peut se procurer ici. Et la laine est un mélange Alpaga/Soie de chez KnitPicks (couleur “Slate”). Un drapé totalement cozy – un chouia mou, même.

~~

J’ai pas mal hésité, mais je me suis décidée à faire une taille L.  Je savais que je ferais une patte de boutonnage tout du long et je voulais être sûre que la dentelle ne s’étire pas trop au niveau du, euh, buste. Je voudrais d’ailleurs dire que ce gilet est assez “avantageux” de ce côté là, d’ailleurs. Peut-être un peu trop, même, en ce qui me concerne😉

The photos aren’t the best and it’s not blocked or anything, but I couldn’t wait to share! I’m so glad my Lush and Lacy is done, and I’m relieved that it looks alright. I took a bit of a gamble on the sizing (I went with a Large) after checking out the fit of other people’s Lush and Lacies.

~~

The yarn, KnitPicks Andean Silk (in Slate) is incredibly cozy, though the cardigan might benefit from a tighter fabric. It feels a bit loosey-goosey.

~~

My only mod was that I made the ribbed button band a bit narrower and decided to add buttonholes (12 I think) by doing yo/decreases.

~~

I recommend this pattern to everyone, especially people who might want to accentuate their – ahem – assets… =) Joking aside, this is a great pattern, and it is a fairly quick knit. No wonder it’s a favorite on the web.

  2. Vraiment tres chouette ce cardigan, la couleur, la dentelle, le col montant,le petit cote vintage. (un peu genre Laetitia Casta ds la bicyclette Bleue). C est exactement ton style car il faut justement le remplir joliment!
    Encore bravo

  3. I saw your cardigan on Craftster but had to come and check out the rest of your blog.
    Gorgeous cardigan!!! I’d been thinking about knitting that one.

  4. Great crafty blog – I simply love this sweater. I (sadly) have not gone beyond knitting scarves but have passed this along to all my crafty ladies.
