I finished this awhile ago and I forgot to post the pics. This is for my sister's friend. She loved it so much, she wants one in another color. She requested one after she saw the one I made my sister. By the way my sister is jealous of the yarn i used. I used Maya yarn (brand ice) 50% alpaca 50% silk from yarn-paradise.com. size 7 needles.

The pattern is Sarah's Shawl Collared Cardigan from White Lies Design.

Let me know what you think.

I really love her designs. She really knows a woman's body. And I love how she designs for such a range of sizes and they flatter ALL shapes. And she is really accessible if you have a question regarding her pattern.

I wish I could afford a bunch of her patterns! I'm unemployed right now. A bunch of them are beautiful. Tell me, are they pdf or are they mailed to you? I wish every single pattern and tutorial online was pdf.

Please tell me, Scout, if you uploaded your pictures directly here or used a photo-hosting thing. I can see your pictures but not most of everyone else's. I'm sure it's the network that I'm on at home.

I know how but I don't know why I can see some pictures and not others. This network doesn't allow access to the photo sites. Grrrrrr!

I made the smallest size. I thought it looked small too but it measured up to what it said in the pattern. its supposed to be 3/4 sleeve but the modeled pic in the pattern doesn't look like it

That is gorgeous! I would never look at the pattern and think that is what you knit. Yours is so much more sleek.

That's so pretty! I looked it up on Ravelry and I would have never picked it, but now that I've seen yours I am putting it in my favs.

My thoughts, exactly! I've looked at that pattern several times, but somehow yours came out so much more flattering.:cheering:

I think it is beautiful. I love the color choice you made and the pattern as well. I have never bought any of their pattens, how did you like them? Were they well written?

I really liked it. I thought it was well written and easy to follow. I found it an easy pattern to substitute the yarn for. I loved the result. I have made it twice. I loved the result both times. the lace section knits up SUPER QUICK( i think that took me one day) what takes a bit longer is the actual ribbing section. I believe I finished this in like 7 days including blocking and seaming? the thing that took the longest was picking up the stitches.

I also bought her book knitting luxury style. i just haven't decided what to knit first from that book. i seriously need to take a sabbatical from work to knit everything that I want.
