Ribbed Collar Cardi

I realize this looks like a lot of the designs out there, but I just had to do this one. It was on my mind and in my sketch book for over a year, was re-designed and then brought back to it's original form last month. I posted earlier a "sleeve sneak peak" and my comment was not to mess with the original idea. The only difference was I sketched it in black.

This yarn color is periwinkle and I love it because I have nothing like it! I paired this with white, black and navy and it looks great with all colors (underneath) and it goes great with jeans.

Great pattern. That's really pretty.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments! I really love this one.

I'm making some minor structural changes to the pattern, I added a row of sc before v-stitching so the foundation chain of the v-st doesn't sag, and the set-in sleeves need a 2 st revamp to fit better. Then it's off for testing.

Thanks again everyone!

I am looking forward to this new
pattern because, while it is a
feminine design, it isn't covered
with a frou-frou lace collar. That's why I have not made any of
those other jackets in this style.
I'm not a lacy-crochet lover. Besides, I think those big lace
wrap collars look ridiculous on
large-size women. I much prefer a
more tailored, classic design.
Thank you so much for understanding
this. I really appreciate your
design sensibility. s.schiffman,
