Here it is, all done. It was a wonderfully pleasant knitting experience. It had quite a bit of finishing detail including crocheted button covers, which took me nearly two days after all the knitting was done.

The pattern is nicely written and all, but I did a few modifications to satisfy my whims. I knitted body pieces together, added 2 inches to the body length, and put on seven buttons to accommodate for increased length and to prevent gaping (which has been an issue for some of the knitters). If I were to knit it again, I would make the sleeves an inch shorter. But as I kind of prefer long sleeves, I am happy with these too.
The yarn is Knit Picks Wool of Andes in Fairy Tale color. (It is a bit darker than as came out in the photo).
It has turned out beautiful and I think it is going to be the favorite cardigan in my wardrobe. wear.


  1. It looks pretty. How do you get the KnitPicks yarn in PK ? Is it available somewhere in Islamabad ?

  5. Oh, how wonderful! I really understand that it will be a favorit, it's really a beauty.
