It's Dollar and a Half Cardigan from Interweave Knits Spring 2007.
The yarn is some acrylic/cotton blend.
I followed the pattern exactly except the buttonholes, which I made by a sturdier one-row method I learned from Equestrian Blazer pattern.
I also went down two needle sizes when knitting the rev st panels to prevent the "michelin man" effect.
For some unknown reasons I couldn't get myself interested enough in knitting this, and I'm so glad that I can move on to another project now!

hahaha the "michelin man effect" that's hilarious. But anyway your sweater is great, and it's too bad you didn't have too much fun making it. Was it just boring and repetitive?

I wasn't too excited when I saw the pattern initially but I love how yours turned out.  Very nicely done.

So pretty! I love that color! I have yarn to knit this, I just need to start one of these days. The more finished ones I see, the more I want to start! They're all so pretty! Good work!

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

That looks beautiful.  The color is splendid.  I'm nearly done mine; I had to order more yarn (>.<).  It looks great on you too.  Yay!

Sometimes it's knit and sometimes it's crochet.
