Best Friend Cardigan
Pattern: Best Friend Cardigan from Twinkle's Big City Knits
Yarn: Twinkle Soft Chunky
Size: small
Needle: Size 19
Modifications: changed the sleeves from set in, to raglan. Knit seamless from the bottom up. Sleeves done in the round. Short row shaping for the neckline.

I think I should have made the medium instead of the small, but hopefully it will stretch out a little with wear. It is supposed to be fitted, but I think the gap below the bottom button bothers me a little. I made the buttons they are sterling silver.

WOW! I just LOVE that sweater. I love all the stuff in that Twinkles Big City Knits book. The only thing I dont love is that all the sizes in that book are so SMALL!

I think the biggest bust size is about a 32. Great for all the model types (lucky girls!) but not for me! I'm a bit bigger than that.

But that sweater looks just perfect, I really love it. And the color is so purty.

Candice,
I forgot to ask you something:
About how many skiens of yarn did you use for this beautiful sweater?

Thanks,
sue
