it took me four days, and now i have a new little cardigan! the plan was for it to turn out much looser and longer than this, but i got impatient and didn't do any swatching or anything. i'm still quite pleased with the result. the pattern's pretty rad, too, and i don't doubt that i will be revisiting it to make a longer, looser, long-sleeved version in the near future. maybe i'll knit it as a split neck pullover! ooo, now that would be even more rad.
so here's my interpretation. these photos are all pre-blocking (the little wet noodle is resting amidst towels as we speak, hopefully growing a teeny, tiny bit), but i'm pretty in love with it thus far.
i love love LOVE the yarn i picked out for it - dive autunno (and plain old cascade for the edging).
the back and me looking silly.
i'm leaning towards adding a couple of buttons to the bottom... but i might just get a fancy pin to cinch across the middle? decisions, decisions.
and it's almost spring! this is my spring sunshine happy face.
