Dressmaker Cardigan
Created By: B Bianca
Craft: knit
Materials: I used the Lion brand Wool Ease in black. I did require 7 balls of yarn, not the 6 stated in the pattern.
Pattern Source: other: Website

This pattern is very involved and time consuming. The pattern calls for size 9 needles, and this cannot be correct. Be sure to check your gauge on this because I ended up using size 6 needles, which is a big difference. Also, for the Right Front there were no specific directions, only to do the opposite of the Left, which was somewhat confusing at times, but I was able to figure it out.

In the end it looks just how I wanted it to. I made it for a friend and I know she is just going to love it. It has already gotten rave reviews from those who I have showed it to so far. I would definitely recommend trying this out if you have the patience and the time.

Bianca, RI
