I’m a cardigan fiend and am over the moon that I made one myself! My only wish is that I had ordered more yarn so that I could have made this a bit longer. I’d love to make one that is a full length cardigan.

This pattern was actually really easy once I got into it. I love the way the cluster stitch looks. Plus, the light yarn keeps this sweater from being bulky.

The only modifications I made were:

--I made it shorter because I was running out of yarn.

--For the sleeve ribbing, I only did a 3 stitch rib instead of the called for 6 stitch rib because I was running out of yarn.

I can’t wait for some cool weather so that I can wear this out somewhere. It will be perfect over a light dress or t-shirt this fall.
