In which I make a gift (Swoon Scarf Neck Cardigan)

Ultra-fast and mostly bragging post, just because the Swoon Scarf Neck Cardigan I made for my sister-in-law for her birthday turned out so well. Is it mean to hope she can't fit this in her bag to take it home to Australia and leaves it behind so I can steal it back?

Swoon Scarf Neck Cardigan in black jacquard wool

I ramped the exposure all the way up so that you can just BARELY see the detail of the fabric. It's a really nice quality black wool mix knit with a self jacquard pattern and it is just SUCH a great fabric. When I made my purple version of this pattern I used a gorgeous fine drapey knit. I do love the purple one (I really do, I've worn it a million times already and I get SO MANY compliments on it) but the change in fabric makes this one really special too. It's quite a heavy, almost structured fabric and it makes this cardigan hang more like a very light jacket. I actually think it looks better on me than hanging on Flossie, but I think it's a bit weird to take photos of myself wearing her gift! Anyway, I hope my sister-in-law likes it as much as I do!


  1. That is very, very nice indeed! Lucky sister-in-law.

  2. That is absolutely gorgeous, and so is your purple one.

    1. Thank you! I just hope my sister-in-law likes it too!
