a summer cardigan

IMG_6150-1IMG_6151The Summer Cardigan by Knitting Pure & Simple is the perfect summer sweater. Stacy put her own spin on this pattern. I think it turned out great. Light and airy. Playful. The increased rows of ribbing at the bottom give this a bit more shape. Can’t decide on which color? Use two and stripe it!

IMG_6152Stacy added more of her flair to it ~ starfish buttons. How gorgeous are these buttons! I want a bowl full of them just sitting there, glistening.

IMG_6021The yarn used is Lang, Divina, a modal/cotton/silk blend. This yarn is so very luscious, has an incredibly soft feel, and when worked up creates defined stitches.

What changes would you make to the pattern? Would you make it longer, add more of a sleeve, no buttons at all…? That is the beauty of our craft, the possibilities are limitless. The same pattern could turn out a 100 different variations.
