Made another child's cardi, using STASH YARN! Yay!
The pattern is my own. Developed the 'blueprints' for the sweater using SWEATER WIZARD. (highly recommend this software for those who have a TON of yarn, but have a difficult time finding a suitable pattern!)

SWEATER WIZARD delivers the bare bones of the pattern and construction, including the math. YOU fill in the details and frills.

Love the colors,and what you came up with after printing out the 'bare bones' pattern. The rolled edge is really cute.

This little cardi is rather plain and simple, but the yarn is colorful!
I had fun, but it seemed like it took forever!

Thanks everyone! It was Stash Yarn, maybe 3-4 yrs old! WhooHoo!

What a sweet little cardi! I love the garter stitch detail before the rolled edge. As always, your knitting has that beautiful signature finish.

Hi MoniDew!

You are a Raveler, yes? If so, I detailed how to use the SWEATER WIZARD software in THIS PROJECT. (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/ArtLady/johns-jacket)

Let me know if you need any help!

Beautiful job ArtLady! My computer brings everything in so slowly. As the yarn was slowly scolling in and I could see the top 1/2" of the label I knew it was Cascade. :-) I see a cherub on the label as well. Is this yarn just like Cherub but with the variegated colors? Cascade Cherub is so soft. A very nice color and the button goes perfectly.

Sweater Wizard should hire you as a salesman. :-)

Hi Judy! Yes, it's the Cascade Cherub! So soft! Easy to knit!
Thanks! I purchased it at the Lamb's Ear in Tacoma, and I do believe she had lots of solid colors, but only one variegated (this one!) I'm a sucker for variegateds and tweeds!
