This looks sooo fun and easy.  I may have to try this one as I am longing for a new cardi...and the chance to buy more yarn  Roll Eyes
Thanks, too, to Milobo for posting bigger better pics!

oooh nice!!
thanks for a much better picture
now i am def inspired to try this pattern

did you have any problems with the sizing?
with lion patterns, sizing is always an issue with me...

The sizing was OK. The nice thing about this pattern was that you can try it on as you go to check. I looked at the schematic and choose the size with the measurements to give me a fairly loose fit (I am 36" bust and I choose the size with 40" finished bust)
They also have a very similar pattern here http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/60568.html - looking at the instructions, it is almost identical but uses a slightly simpler stitch pattern. In the picture they have it fairly close fitting, but I would make it with a looser fit, so that it acually wraps around. I would also use a different yarn, either slightly finer, or more fluid to get a better drape.

I NEVER would have considered making this based on the pic at lionbrand's website, but seeing your cardigan changes everything  Cheesy.

Thanks for sharing.
