What a beautiful sweater! I love the color on you!

BTW..what did you mean in your blog that you would knit the fronts, back and hood in one piece? Is it knit from the bottom?

Hi Jan! :waving:

Yes, this cardi is kni from the bottom up, starting with the ribbing, then straight up until the armhole shaping. Since I did everything on long cabled circular needles anyway, I could have knit the back piece and the 2 front pieces together as one, then done the arm hole shaping separately for each - that way I could have skipped the seaming step for the body.

Thank you sooo much everyone for looking and for the sweet sweet compliments!

If you decide you want to make this sweater, I highly recommend it and I'm VERY happy to offer any tips or encouragement along the way!

:cheering:That is absolutely beautiful! This cardigan is on my "to be knit" list. I love the closure you used, is it a double pointed knitting needle? It looks cute that way.

Thanks so much! Yes it is a dpn! :lol:

I was actually pretty happy with how it held together...I think I'll get someting similar for the permanent closure, like a shawl pin.
