I'm not sure how to describe this construction other than... funky. I love how it's both done up and not, it gives a really intriguing silhouette for whatever outfit you wear with it. They're easy knit, so you'll be able to relax while knitting these. I'm also wondering how it would look to put some buttonholes on the edging of the cardigan, so you can fully do it up too. Who knows? You do what you want - that's the joy of making.
