This pattern is found in the Classic Elite #9105 (soft cover) book, titled "Saturday Afternoon".
I really like the Classic Elite soft cover knitting booklets.

Anyway, the Ariosa is a very plain little cardigan, but the beauty and interest is on the back of it.
A centered lace panel. Very unusual.

I modified the sizing. Cast on for a larger size, and decreased down to a smaller size by armhole bind offs. That's what gives it the slight A shape. Here's (http://images4.ravelrycache.com/uploads/cecilyam/11947446/AriosaCardiBack_medium.jpg) what the model sweater looks like.

If you heard a loud thump, that was just me passing out in Michigan! ;) I really think you must have found a way to clone yourself!! Beautiful cardigan, what a beautiful back panel. Love the colour too.

OMG! I can't believe how beautiful this is! Everything about it from the lace in the back to the unusual buttons.

That turned out gorgeous! I like your A-line better than the original, and the "party in back" (lace) is divine!

That's amazing. I love the pattern on the back. You knit so fast. So many FOs.

I love it, and I don't think it's 'plain' at all!
