I love this sweater and will undoubtedly use this pattern again again. It's Sedum (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/sedum), a free Ravelry download, and the yarn is KnitPicks Swish Bulky in Planetarian. Itís very warm and comfy, and Iím sure Iíll wear it a lot this winter.

I used stockinette instead of seed stitch as the pattern calls for, and changed the waist shaping a bit. I love the color, but I really donít like the way Swish fuzzes and pills. Itís very soft, but by the time the sweaterís done it looks used. Next time Iíll definitely use a different yarn.

So very nice, Slim! You always chose the best little designs! This cardi is wonderful! I do like the st st on your cardi! However, the Sedum design is really nice either way! The st st is, I think, more figure flattering. Slimming!
Not that you need slimming! But I do!

Lovely! I think on your frame, the mode to st st was perfect, it hugs you just right! And the color is wonderful, too!!

Yes - love it! Thanks for sharing - I was thinking I'd like a pattern for a cardigan with bulky yarn. I'd like to try this one!

Very pretty! And, yes, I like your stockinette better too. The seed is pretty, but I prefer stockinette. :yay:
