Though I think the look on my face here expresses The Traumas I go through to bring you a modelled shot!! I always like to see other people wearing their knits so I try though it can be painful!
Here's a more reasonable buttoned up shot and we didn't need the top of my head anyway did we? I also think I look a bit dwarfy but praps that's because I am. I actually think I'll wear it more unbuttoned. I don't think the raglan style does me any favours around the shoulder/upper arm area but it is a peach to knit from the top.
It's all knitted as written except that I did the arms on 4.5mm rather than 5mm as that was the size I had in a nice short circ and the buttons are on the wrong side as I skim read the instructions and did the right button band without button holes - that's what knitting at a festival gets you! This is a super fast knit as I am super slow and yet it took me less than a month. I think I didn't get distracted by something shiny and new as all the way through I was convinced I was going to love the FO. The yarn feels like a squishy, ultra wearable dream, I love the colour and it's a simple knit with just those few little details to add a little interest.
Here I model the cuff for you - a nice twisted rib with a purl border and the pretty eyelet line around the edge of the whole cardi is lovely.
Huzzah no more photos!
