Artfibers Oodle Cardigan

Pattern: Basic raglan cardigan pattern generated by Knitscape with a sailor collar added by me. The collar, cuffs, and hems are embellised with a cabled rib.
Yarn: Artfibers Oodle, a fingering weight handdyed cotton ribbon.
Notes: I wanted a close fitting cardigan in a comfortable fiber and the Oodle seemed to fit the bill. The yarn has great drape which made the button band a little too floppy. I sewed on a grossgrain ribbon facing in an effort to firm the band up. I still need to sew in hook and eye closures on this cardi. I love the colors in this yarn - a deep blend of violet, browns, reds, and a few flecks of white.
