FO: Cardigan to love
I finished my very first cardigan a few days ago. It was so easy, I don't know why I was so afraid to make one to begin with. Now I'll definitely be making more. The pictures aren't the greatest, but I wanted to show off my work.

Wow that is really pretty. I love the details and lace oh my what a job you have done. I have never made a cardigan, was it intimidating to you at all? You really have a beautiful piece to add to any wardrobe.

Yay! It's beautiful! What pattern is it?

No, sweaters aren't hard. My first was after 3 mos of knitting and I'm not a brave person. It was a well written simple roll neck, sleeve and bottom sweater. It's too large, but I kept it anyway. I prefer raglans and seamless by far so I always do those.

Oh, that turned out beautiful! Wonderful color for you, and I love the lace. The design is very flattering on, too. I like the three buttons at the top, which probably makes the cardi look really swingy, yes?

Great first cardigan, and there's no stopping you now!!!

Thank you all for the kind comments.
I'm really quite pleased with myself and now I can't wait to make make more cardigans.
Jan-The pattern is Cardigan to Love. I can't imagine having made a sweater within 3 months of knitting....but then it did take me about 10 years to finally master the purl stitch.
Internette-It was intimidating looking at the instructions when I was first reading them. I think I may have physched myself out a bit. But once I got to actually knitting it, it all made a lot more sense to me.
Antares-Yes I believe it does make it look a bit swingy, which is one of the things that I love about it!!

I made #9724 on page 3. The first page has the newer version that's a more fitted shape. Their patterns are very well written and I often recommend them to new knitters.

Thanks for the info!

Oh, wonderful sweater! It's a great piece and you've done well. Lovely color and a pleasing use of lace in the body of the sweater. Thanks for posting the pictures and for the pattern link, too.
