The Ultimate Cardigan

It has been a little while since I last posted, but only because I've been hard at work on my latest knit! It's a little something from Vogue Knitting Magazine I call the Ultimate Cardigan, because it has so many different style elements all in one garment. It has cables on the front; wide ribbing at hem, cuffs, and collar; a belt; a shawl collar; and big buttons! I used a machine washable wool yarn called Washable Ewe by Stitch Nation in the color Zinnia. It took about 6 weeks to complete, and thanks to JoAnn sending me coupons all the time, I was able to purchase all of the yarn and the buttons for less than $30! (Fellow knitters will know that the sky is really the limit when it comes to price ranges in yarn!) So, without further ado, the Ultimate Cardigan!
