how long did it take you to put it together?  i'm always interested in how much time is invested in a single cardigan.
2 months

Love this! It's so beautiful and elegant. And I adore that color! Do you plan on releasing a pattern?
Probably I will release the pattern on my blog. I will update if I do so.

Lovely. Especially the crocheted details. Its the first time I hear about the possibility of splitting the yarn in two: can you do that with every kind of yarn ?
So far I only have experience with cotton yarn. I imagine it will be difficult to split wool or alpaca (very sticky).
124  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / SAGE CARDIGAN (with tip to split the yarn) on: February 04, 2007 08:55:03 PM
This was my first original design for knitting. Its a long knit because I was using small needle and using fingering weight yarn. Well, its actually DK weight, but I splitted the yarn into two to get fingering weight yarn. The yarn brand was Wendy Supreme Cotton DK that I bought from Cucumberpatch. I bought 4 balls (1 balls = 100 gram or 201 meter), but I ended up only using 3 balls (only about 3 or 4 meter left). The cost of the yarn itself was RM20.50 or USD5.85 per balls (including the shipping cost), thus this cardigan only cost me RM61.50 or USD17.55! Its very cheap for hand made one of the kind knitted garment, dont you think?
More details in my blog http://lilygo.blogspot.com/





I thought I post it here, since a lot of people ask.

Tip to split the yarn:1. unravel about 2 or 3 meter yarn, then tied the ball using rubber band
2. when you split the yarn, make sure you pull the yarn tightly (ask for help or use your feet to hold)
3. hang the ball and let it spin before you unravel for more.

I can split 1 ball or 50 gram yarn in about 1 hour.

Thanks TigerGirl and StarsFire,

TigerGirl, I believe you can do it also if you had the pattern Smiley

Thank you again for all the good word. You really make my day. I really like this top so much that probably I will make the second version.

Are you sharing or selling the pattern??
To tell you the truth, I did not make a note. I just somehow made it up as I go.

And the white cardigan on your blog is exquisite, too.  Would you mind sharing your pattern source for that?

For the white cardigan that you saw in my blog, the pattern is from Japanese pattern book called Lets knit Series. The ISBN is 4-529-03528-X published in year 2001.
