I was inspired by Constance's (of the blog Yarning Over the Days) Red Mei-Mei so I decided to copy her.
I used Cascade 220 worsted weight yarn in Christmas Red. I bought it online from Webs. I got the button at Jo-Ann Fabrics. I really love the button.
Total Cost: $12.78
- Yarn: $11.18
- Button: $1.60
This was a very quick project and I have plans to make a black Mei-Mei in the near future.
I love that Mei-Mei looks good both open and closed. That's a real bonus because I have made some cardigans, like Pike Place and Agatha, that only look good closed and I feel like that limits their wearability. (Side note: My Agatha cardigan doesn't look good open because of my yarn choice, not because of the pattern itself.)
I think this cardigan would look great in a drapey cotton yarn for summer. I'll probably make one someday since it only takes a couple of hours to work up.
All the construction details are available on my Ravelry Project Page.
Sox really loves wool. He's always all over my projects made from wool.
