Day 9 in the Knit You Advent Calendar 2014: Graeg
More gray! Or grey! If there's one color in the world I can't get enough of, that must be gray. In all the different variations and fibers. This slightly to brown leaning gray colorway from The Uncommon Thread, called Toast, is absolutely gorgeous. And it's a great match to this sweet and dressy yet military influenced little cardigan.
When feeling powerless this fitted jacket with short cap sleeves comes to the rescue! Versatile high collar gives comfort and ruffles at back sweeten the military look. This jacket combines Stockinette and garter stitch, paired with buttons and beautiful front details. Get your inner armor knitted!
