What do you think?
I just love the pockets... best change ever. it's such a cozy warm cardigan that pockets just seemed necessary. It's perfect to go for a walk with my dog and take nothing out but the house keys in them. Everyone comments on how pretty it looks, and I have fallen in love with how comfortable it is...

It looks so pretty & cozy!

It's got a great Fall look, what yarn did you use?

I'd love to make this, but have yet to tackle Fair Isle, how was it?

I love the colorway you chose! It looks fabulous!

If you don't mind my asking, what size did you work it in?

Thanks for all the nice comments!  Cheesy

This is fairly easy and quick, because it's worked in really thick yarn and needles... I had to use three strands of yarn together to make the gauge fit properly.

The only modification done were the pockets, i used a blend of alpaca and acrylic and the size was small. I'm really skinny, but also quite tall... and the cardigan is really big! I can wear two layers of clothing underneath it! it works well because of how comfy it is, but if you want it tighter, modifications will probably HAVE to be done. it's really wide and long...

The moment I saw this I knew one day I would knit it... just haven't yet.  You did a wonderful job!  Isn't it a fun thing to be wearing such a beautiful thing that you made?!

Great job on that Cardigan!   It looks so cool! . . . Well, actually it looks warm and toasty, but you know what I mean!  Great color choice!

I think the pockets were a great idea and a really nice touch.
