A very simple, everyday cardigan. I thought that the basic pattern would perfectly highlight the beautiful yarn. I was worried I would have trouble with the collar after having read the other comments, but it worked out well for me. I made it a few inches longer than the pattern.

This fantastic wool has the sproinginess of a more rustic yarn, yet it is softsoftsoft. I should warn you that it’s SUPER pilly. I have shaved it several times, but pills keep appearing. I still love the yarn, but would use it at a tighter gauge next time.
