I wear loads of cardigans, but usually I do not have the patience to completely knit one or the money. Although I found this pattern. It was a really quick knit and very easy to follow.
I didn't have enough of one colour so I got together all my green DK and just mixed and matched throughout with two strands.

The buttons I made especially for this project as I found I needed 14 of then. So I pulled out the polymer clay.












I love it  Grin and I steamed it with my iron which seems to have blocked it quite well.

I love the mixed greens!  So much more interesting than if you'd used one color.

great job!  I made one of these in a very similar pattern with drop stitches and hated doing it!  So I give you credit for this one.. drop stitches are no fun in my opinion! Smiley

I've been knitting dishcloths for so long that I need instant gratification - and that sweater looks like it would be nearly that fast!

Great work!
