    I don’t think you could have taken a better photo of your new cardigan. I love the stitch design and the color is gorgeous. I’ve been contemplating getting some Quince & Co. and I think it’s been decided!

    I love this! the color is beautiful. I’ve been eyeing up a couple of Quince & Co yarns for a while but haven’t bought any yet. I love their website.

    another lovely design! you are awesome. and the colour is really nice. now I want to knit one, zipper and all! Maybe Frank’s Plum? or rosa rugosa or lupine or crocus…!

  7. Love it! I must say, good job on the zipper… what is the trick to keep it from doing the wave down your belly? I hope you know what I mean… last zipper I put in doesn’t lie flat on the body, but pokes out in a wave like fashion…..

      Try a shorter zipper? The waves are created when the zipper is too long. The knitted fabric is stretched when it goes around your body, when you stretch a knit for width, it gets shorter. Even if the sweater has positive ease it still stretches a little.

      I measured the front from CO to BO (neck to hem) as carefully as I could, then bought the zipper that was the next size down. Pinoli measured something like 21 1/2″ 2 which isn’t a standard size, instead of going for a 22″ I chose the 20″.

      Also I borrowed the trick of using blocking wires to sew the zipper from the Split Yarn Zipper tutorial, and highly recommend it. In this case I used only 2 wires, 1 for each side up through the i-cord.
