''This cardigan was inspired by a trip to Montreal. I saw this yarn being dyed in person which got me to thinking of a seed and how it starts from something so small and grows into something bigger and more beautiful. This yarn is from the Louise Robert Design Collection. Like a seed, this color was born from an idea and flourished into beautiful skeins of yarn. Thinking so much about seeds I knew my cardigan had to be knit with a Seed Stitch design. Like a seed, the skein of yarn then grew into a classic, easy to wear, beautiful cardigan and it all happened in St-Bruno on Roberval street'' - Andrea Yetman

A beautiful, practical cardigan with an interesting stitch pattern that would be a welcome addition to anyone's wardrobe.
I just completed and blocked this, and was thrilled to discover that the seed stitch patterns were similar to ones I used on sweaters for my grandchildren!
The pattern is interesting and the directions are very clear. Thank you.
