I had to share this.... I've just finished my first cardigan. It's a waterfall/wrap cardigan, is very warm, and I love it lots! Pictures are here (as a newbie, I can't add images in posts).

I used a free pattern, Elizabeth Wrap Cardigan, available here: http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/90135AD.html?noImages= and altered it slightly, making the sleeves full-length rather than 3/4, and shortening the front panels so it didn't hang quite so low and create quite as much bulk. I also added a buttonhole in the right collar and a button on the left breast, but you can't see it in the photos!
