A new cardigan

This was a simple little cardigan made of the softest yarn - a combination of New Zealand merino with cashmere.

It drapes beautifully and feels wonderful.

The reason it took so long to finish was I made the sleeves two times.

I had a different gauge than the pattern specified, and the sleeve cap was just too big for the body of the sweater. So I took them off and completely remade them.

It's all better now, ready for cool fall days to come.

What a beautiful design line! I especially like the pattern just around the waist....what a special touch. Lot of work, re-doing parts, but worth the final fit!

Beautiful! Love the waist shaping. This should be a great, classic addition to your wardrobe.
