I haven't started to knit this cardigan yet (thus the 4 star rating) but I love the look of it. With any luck, it will be a quick project.

I liked the pattern and started knitting right away. I had a question about the pattern and emailed a question. The answer came very quickly and it was problem with my understanding "Canadian speak" vs Oregonian speak. All is solved and the sweater is knitting up quickly.

Thank you very much for your appreciation.

This is exactly the sort of comfy cozy sweater for winter around the house! I was looking for something warm and squishy like this and it's just perfect!
