Yay, I made it. After more than a year in the make, I finished my cardigan a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunalety it is a bit too warm to wear now, but I think it will be great for long nights at the beach. The cardigan is so comfy and cuddly, the ideal thing to just wrap in and feel good. I have to admit though, I didn't finish it by myself. My expert-knitter mom made the final touches like adding a button tab and shortening the sleeves, which were about 15 cm too long.
I finished the jacket by sewing on the wooden buttons.
Anyway, here are some closeups of the buttons and the collar which is knitted in a 2x2 rib.
