My Harvest cardigan is finally complete!  I actually finished knitting it at the end of December, but I wasn't able to order buttons until a week ago.  (Christmas left us broke!)  Anyway, the buttons came in today, and I couldn't wait to get them attached and take some photos.

The pattern is Harvest by Raya Budrevich (found on Ravelry).  Yarn is Malabrigo Rios in a color called Teal Feather, and the buttons are from Woodland Workshop on Etsy.

I made a size 2T and added length to the hem and sleeves.  And that would have been totally fine, but here's where I messed up a little:  I didn't block my gauge swatch!  I don't know why it didn't cross my mind to do so.  Maybe because I've never knit a sweater or cardigan -- mostly hats and shawls so far.  Anyway, lesson learned.  The good news is that it will fit him perfectly next year!  Cheesy

Picture time!  These shots were taken outside where it was pretty bright, so the color is kind of washed out.

I'm kind of obsessed with the buttons.

Action shots!  These photos are closest to the actual color.

(^^You can see how long it is here.  And the sleeve cuffs are rolled up, too!)

Full details on my Ravelry project page.  Also, (and I hope this is allowed) feel free to add me there.  I have like one friend.  Roll Eyes

Thanks for looking!

Everything about this is beautiful - the color, the texture of the stitch, the buttons!!

He will grow into it. Hmmm, I wonder if I could squeeze into it in the meantime Wink.

I've worked with that Malabrigo Rios yarn before and loved it!

Thanks everyone for all the great comments!

I loved the yarn, too!  It was my first time working with Malabrigo Rios, and I will definitely be buying it again.  I don't know if you can quite tell in the photos, but there are really subtle variations in the color.  It's not variegated, but it's like some parts of the yarn are more intensely colored and some parts are more faded looking.  I like the overall effect.

He will grow into it. Hmmm, I wonder if I could squeeze into it in the meantime Wink.

I have a petite friend who might be able to squeeze into it, but I think I'll have to wait about 10 years before I can start stealing sharing his clothes.  The thought did cross my mind, though.  Cheesy
