This nordic cardigan is one of my favourite opp shop finds. I love to imagine the story behind such beautiful workmanship and why it looks unworn - perhaps it was too small, too itchy, not pink enough. Someone must have cared a lot to have knitted this beautiful piece. It has been carefully knitted in the round with steeked openings for the front and sleeves.
After some careful wearing and ice cream eating, I can say that it fits Little E beautifully and it is in no way too itchy. However, it took some care in washing. The cut threads to the sleeves needed a little reinforcing before it was worn again. Fortunately, Grandma knew a thing or two about that.
I still don't quite know where it came from, but I have to admit that we love this cardigan right down to its little reindeer riding buttons.
