FO: Cotton mini cardi
I won this Mission Falls 1824 cotton yarn on Ebay. I wanted to make a little summer cardi or shrug, but the texture of this yarn knits up into a coarser fabric than I had in mind. Still, it turned out pretty cute. I think it will be just right to wear over a tank top -- very casual. The pattern is Catherine's mini cardi/shrug with a few modifications.

That is cute! Could you have used a larger needle?

What a cute little cardigan. As Chris said, perfect for something on a cool evening.

I like the modifications you made. Yours looks a little longer than the original and I like the addition of the ties. It is beautiful!
