FINALLY!!! I have finished this vest I have been working on for my daughter - it's all sewed up and got a button on it and ready for her to wear to school tomorrow. :hug:

The pattern is A Cardigan for Arwen (http://www.kategilbert.com/p_arwen.html) by Kate Gilbert. I used Tatamy Tweed Worsted yarn in pumpkin.

I love the hood and the cabling detail in front. Very unique and very nicely knitted.

I bet your daughter loves it! :cheering:

Oh I've always LOVED this pattern! I was going to knit this one, too, in the baby size! But I got scared off by the cables meeting in the center of the hood (at the top)! I see your seam is perfect! You were able to align the cables on each side of the seamline in a very nice configuration! Great work! Love the color, too!!!

Thanks everyone. She does love it and it looks great on her. The construction/knitting of Arwen is sooo different that I had to rewrite the pattern to make this. It was fun and I loved knitting it.
