Favourite knit

Excellent yarn and pattern. Some very clever details e.g. the button holes are the cable loops, which work really well. The cardigan is lovely and warm, but not too warm to wear indoors. I wore this a lot last winter, and it is still looking very good with little effort.

I purchased this as a Christmas gift for a friend. It can on time and was beautifully boxed . I am sure she will love it.
