I can't even remember where I got the pattern from, maybe Simply Knitting (a UK mag), but I fell in love with it and HAD to knit it even though it has such a funny name. Matinee Cardigan sounds like something you wear in the 40s, right?

It's knitted with an acrylic yarn.

Ah thanks! It took a couple of weeks but I'm also knitting other *stuff*.

Next up  is probably a Lana Grossa sweater. :-)

Aww, brilliant. I had to post because a matinee cardigan is the only thing my mum has ever knit for me, and that was in the 70s! To be fair she didn't have the benefit of Stitch n Bitch and doesn't knit anymore, though i seem to be making up for it  Cheesy

Cheers,
Helen

haha!  i was expecting a manatee (the animal) on the cardigan somewhere!  it is very cute, though, even without a "sea-cow" on it.

hey this looks really great! im trying to figure out how to make something like this for myself...do you increase when you get under the bust, so it kind of gathers, or flows out?
