Ribby Cardi – Finished!

FO - Ribby Cardi

I’m done! I had my zipper installed by a seamstress for $20 and she’s wearable now! Notes about the pattern: (1) I used 5.0 mm instead of 4.5 mm for the body panels to give the ribbing a bit more “spring”; (2) The collar was supposed to be a mock turtleneck version but it ended up a bit long and the seamstress thought it best to put the zipper just to the top of the front panels which works for me as it sits better this way; and (3) I made the back panel slightly shorter than the front panels and had to pick up stitches and add the blue at the bottom to make them even in length…an “oops” to start but turned out nicely anyways.
