Simplicity cardigan

Here is my Simplicity cardigan. I finished this a few weeks ago and I just love it. This is my first lace weight cardigan and surely not the last.

The pattern is fairly easy, but it just takes forever to knit. I almost ripped it all out several times but I'm glad I finished it. If you plan on making this cardigan, a word of advice. Follow the pattern as is! I was a bit concerned about the edge of the cardigan rolling over, so I tried several things which all didn't work out so well. In the end I just bound off using Elizabeth Zimmermann's sewn bind off.

Pattern: Simplicity Cradigan
Yarn: Madelinetosh Prairie
Needles: 3,75mm
