From Susan — Brief Response

Filed under: Eris Cardigan — lv2knit @ 4:57 pm

In answer to Melanie’s question, the width of the collar = 15″ across:


I think that mine may be narrower because I pulled up the collar a bit with the i-cord edging.  I’ve seen other pictures and the collars seem wider.  The actual shoulders will conform to the wearer because of the raglan shaping.

My zippers just arrived and none of them are great — one is so bright it’s like neon green!  Whoa, put the lights out please!  One is really dark but kind of goes.  Not sure what I’ll do yet…


  1. Grumperina had trouble getting a matching zipper for her cardigan. She sent a bit of the yarn to, and they matched it for her; she loved the result.

    That is such a beautiful collar! I hope to be able to cable that assuredly some day.

  2. From Susan — I ordered the zippers from Zipperstop; they do not have the soft green I need. But thanks for the suggestion!

  3. Thank you! I think 15″ might be just a little too wide for me, so you have saved me some grief. Your Eris is beautiful, and I am sad that I will not have one of my own. I hope you find a zipper that you like.
