Hello everyone :)

That sweater I was going to knit my mom has been changed into a cardigan... one she will be able to wear to the office and brag about to her colleagues ;) She works at the French Embassy so she has to look pretty sharp. I have a lovely alpaca boucle yarn to make it with :)

All I'm missing is a pattern >_< I'd make one myself but... I don't know the first thing about design, yeah, it hurts to admit it...

So I'm looking for something elegant and simple, long-ish ('cause mom ain't all that young and hip no more) with a deep v-neck and sleeves :) Not too fitted either, she hates that. If you could help me find something, I'd be really grateful :D Thankies all :)

I have this pattern book (the first picture shown on the top left of the link given) http://www.yarnfwd.com/ca/patternsher10.html and I think this cardigan is very classy looking. It isn't very long, but I think you could make it longer very easily just by increasing the body length.
