Park Ave Cardigan -- Sweater #8

This sweater is really my pride and joy this year.  Based off a favorite sweater of mine that has seen better days, I worked this up off of trial and error.  I wouldn't necessarily call it a pattern, but maybe more along the lines of pattern notes.  It was made with Berroco Vintage DK, light-weight and machine washable -- a definite plus in our house!  This cardigan has some waist and hip shaping for a more flattering fit. 

Finished Measurements:
Chest: 37”
Arm Length: 21”
Length: 25”

Materials Needed:
  • 5 skeins Berroco Vintage DK Yarn (1440 yards)
  • US6/4mm circular needles
  • US6/4mm double pointed needles
  • 4 stitch markers
  • Yarn needle
  • Waste Yarn
The pattern is available as a PDF file, and unfortunately it turns out it is too big to be converted into a Google Doc to post on my blog, so here is the link to Ravelry, where it is a free download:

Happy Knitting everyone!
