The design of this cardigan is inspired by the popular in the 16th-19th centuries shape of sleeves in women's clothing, that were called gigot sleeves (French for "back leg of an animal", known also as "leg-of -lamb" or "leg-of'mutton" sleeves).
These aleeves are puffy at the shoulders and tight from the elbow down to the wrist.
This is a tight fitting little cardigan.
The two color slip-stitch pattern on the bodice is not a ctranded colorwork, but a slip stitch pattern when only one color is used per row.
9 sts = 1" in stockenet stitch
8 sts = 1" in slip stitch pattern
16 rs = 1" in slip stitch pattern

I am, probably, a crafter by nature. I love to work with my hands. And I love all things yarns, thread, fabric. Loved them from as early as I can remember myself. Sewing, knitting, crochet, embroidery were always my favorite.
Touch of the fiber, color, shape, intricate pattern - they all inspire me. A ball of yarn, needles or a hook - when they are in my hands, it makes me happy.
