FO: Sedum Cardigan
I love this sweater and will undoubtedly use this pattern again again. It's Sedum, a free Ravelry download, and the yarn is KnitPicks Swish Bulky in Planetarian. Itís very warm and comfy, and Iím sure Iíll wear it a lot this winter.

I used stockinette instead of seed stitch as the pattern calls for, and changed the waist shaping a bit. I love the color, but I really donít like the way Swish fuzzes and pills. Itís very soft, but by the time the sweaterís done it looks used. Next time Iíll definitely use a different yarn.

So very nice, Slim! You always chose the best little designs! This cardi is wonderful! I do like the st st on your cardi! However, the Sedum design is really nice either way! The st st is, I think, more figure flattering. Slimming!
Not that you need slimming! But I do!
