FO: Ruffle edge cotton cardigan!

Well, it is done! Length: 15" (a cropped, waist-length)
Sleeves: 18". Chest: 23"

It took 585 yds. I think the ruffles sucked up a lot of yardage cuz the
Sweater Wizard said it would take 433 yds with normal cuffs and edges.



I installed only 2 buttonholes. Laila doesn't like to button up.
So the two are just for very minor buttoning! These buttons look pink, but they are abalone color. Not real shell, but that look.



If you'd like to read about the pattern or details of its construction, HERE is the KH-WIP page, and HERE is its Ravelry page. I'm very proud of this little cardigan, being that it is basically my own design. Read about it HERE.

Stash Yarn freed from Yarn Jail: 5.3 skeins!
