VKLive Sweater Three
Modern Garden Cardigan by Veera Välimäki
XL (modified gauge)
Needles & yarn
Classic Elite Yarns Ariosa with Cashmere
14 skeins = 1218.0 yards (1113.7 meters), 700 grams

This was a quick knit in doubled Ariosa, but alas not quick enough. Blogged here

I flew through this. I know this is an exceptionally unpopular view, but I almost prefer sweaters knit in pieces and seamed. This was like carrying around a queen bedspread in my bag! The shaping is this sweater is beautiful and brilliant, being almost completely contained in the leaf motif. I used Kitchener stitch to join the armpits.
