Love it! Love your improvised design. Love cheapo yarn. I wish I could see the buttons better. Right now I'm improvising (hey, it sounds a lot better than making it up as I go along! Thank you for the word, do you mind if I use it too?) a cardigan from cheapo Pound of Love acrylic. You inspire me!

Beautiful and perfect for spring and summer! It will drape beautifully too, I'm sure.

yes, it is an adult size - although I couldn't quite say which adult size it is... I'm between a small and a medium, about a (American) size 8. It was knit to my measurements. (no ease, positive or negative, so it "just' fits).

Thank you for the response to my question. It would look very nice on a lot of different sizes of people.

That's an awesome design! The yarn may be cheap, but the sweater certainly doesn't LOOK cheap! Lovely!
