So quick I hadn't even blogged about its progress, this is the BOB (Bulky One-Button) cardigan. It was a very spontaneous project -- I was sick of having ten balls of chocolate-brown Debbie Bliss Merino Chunky in my stash and didn't know what to do with it, and then on Ravelry I came across the project page for the so-called Anthropologie-Inspired Capelet (pattern here for non-Ravelers). In particular, it was Starflower's version that got me casting on.
So, the AIC pattern was a springboard for BOB. I had to adjust for a different gauge, plus I knew I wanted to add exaggerated button bands down the fronts and lengthen both the body and the sleeves. Oh, and use the knit side rather than the purl side as the RS. I used a long 6.5mm circular needle for the body and button bands, and four 6.5mm dpns for the sleeves. Soaking the finished garment in Soak turned it from puffy to drapey. I'd originally planned to use one of my recently thrifted buttons for the closure, but in the end I felt that the chunky gauge overwhelmed the delicate button innards, so I went with a solid pearly button instead.
And now, watch closely as Mooky takes over the photo shoot completely...
And now for something serious: Who's watching ANTM tonight?
