My grand-daughter is in need of a new winter cardigan. I guess that if you live in Brisbane, as she does, then 'need' is a relative term. But even in Brisbane the evenings and mornings in winter can be quite chilly, so a not too heavy weight cardigan is just about what is needed.
I chose the colour (which in reality is a bit more eggplant-ish than these photos show) because it won't show stains and dirt too quickly and Ana Maria chose the chartreuse colour for the pocket linings. I think she's showing great colour sense already!
The yarn is Grignasco Merino Gold DK which is 100% wool but, fortunately, washable. The pattern is Georgie Hallam's Little Butterflies and it comes with lots of instructions for various modifications - sleeve lengths, contrast borders - and with excellent advice for yarn substitution. The pattern is named for the wrapped stitches mainly around the yoke that create a butterfly effect. The buttons, by the way, are much, much brighter than my photos show and a great match for the pocket linings.
I posted the cardigan off to my grand-daughter yesterday, hoping she'll like it. Maybe I'll have some photos of her wearing it - much more interesting than my hasty pics before I posted it off.
