Grey cardigan with mother of pearl buttons

The other grey wooly farbic I got in Oberhausen was turned into yet another pattern from the Ottobre issue:

I used the pattern number four and used the grey woolly knit instead of the recommended lace fabric from Ottobre. I also added some closure for the front because I hate warm cardigans that are open in front. Why keep the back warm and let the front freeze? The mother of pearl buttons I used were a gift from *wollmaus* some while ago. This was what came out

Button closure with organdy ribbon

the cardigan can still be worn open

I added pockets. You can never have enough pockets!

View inside. I attached the pockets by some hand stitches.
