The finished cardigan!

In my last post I wrote how I'd just started a gorgeous cardigan from Linda Permann's book, Little Crochet. I'm so pleased to say that I have finished it!

It's a great pattern and it has some lovely stitches and finishing that I've just fallen in love with. I used Rico 100% cotton yarn and even though the stitches are moderately loose the cardigan is super snuggly (and surprisingly heavy!). It took me around a fortnight, working an hour or so a night so maybe 20 hours in total? 

I'm so pleased with it. The size came out a little bigger than expected but that means more growing room!

I finished the cardigan off with two purple polka dot buttons and it looks great!

Can you tell I'm pleased?!?
