FO-Best Friend Cardigan
4 Attachment(s)
This is the Best Friend Cardigan by Wenlan Chia from Big City Knits.

I knit it on size 19 needles with Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca Grande. This yarn is super super soft. I love it. I did not do the bobbles as instructed as I wanted a slimmer and cleaner look.

If I were to do it again I would make it a little longer than instructed. I am really petite and this is still pretty short. though I think it still looks cute.

I also would skip the buttonholes as the gauge is loose enough that the buttons can slip through. I think with the button holes you get a gaping problem, though it could be the yarn that I am using as alpaca is a little slippery.

That's very cute on you, and a great color.

Also like your kitty making a guest appearance, probably hoping you'll put the sweater down so she can cuddle up in it.

Yes, it could be a bit longer, but that length seems to be in and looks very nice on you. Beautiful yarn. Nice job on it.
