''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

The pattern is interesting and the directions are very clear. Thank you.
A fairly straightforward pattern which knits up well
I have almost completed knitting this cardigan with DK yarn. I love the pattern and found the directions very easy to follow.
I would really love to knit this pattern but have no clue how to download. It is free and I went through the shopping cart but still no idea how to get this. I thought it might be automatically emailed once I ordered, but nothing. I will change my rating once I get some response. Thanks
