Betty Draper’s cardi

I hope Betty Draper is envious.

I have made a cardi she could wear. And, I hope, would wear!

The pattern is from a 1953 Australian newspaper, and I found it via Ravelry. The yarn is Madelinetosh Pashmina, in the colorway ‘Betty Draper’s Blues’.

My favorite stylist and photographer, Julie, made it even more awesome by helping me take amazing pictures. I love you, Julie!

I could be Don’s new secretary, couldn’t I?

Or, at least a 1950’s house wife..

Some details:

If you want to see more details, see my Ravelry project page.

I have made a lot of modifications, but I have for once limited them to the construction and stayed true to the original vintage model. Post on those notes will be coming soon!
