A cute cropped cardigan with a collar, Kantsubaki.
We asked designer Tokuko about the design points.

[From Tokuko]
A very popular detachable collar from last year. I understand that it doesn't look good on me (there are so many pictures taken!), but I'm embarrassed to wear it. But actually, I have two shirts with frilly collars.
So, I decided to research what kind of cute collared clothes I could wear, and decided to make the New Year's kit the result of that research.
Kantsubaki's design points are ・Sleeves are thick enough to be easily worn with shirts with thick sleeves ・The length is short like an accessory. That's why I decided to make my sleeves wider. In addition, the length makes it feel like an accessory, so it is useful when you want to add a little girly to a casual look. I just needed this little bit. Recommended for people like me in the photo who only wear jeans.
And those who feel ashamed of their collars. The collar is optional! If you try knitting and think it's no good, use it as a normal cardigan.
I was able to wear this!

The knitting process looks like this:
Knit the front and back together from the hem, and knit the front and back separately from the knitted knit. After knitting the lower shoulder, rip the shoulder, pick up the sleeve and knit it toward the lower sleeve. Pick up the collar and knit elastic, and knit the placket in the same way. A lace patterned collar is optional.

Because it opens in the front, when choosing a size, halve the nude size of the bust and have a margin of about 15 cm.
Example) If your nude bust size is 80cm, half bust 40cm + margin 15cm = 55cm, so choose size 1.
