FO: Shalom Cardigan

I knitted this cardi as part of a KAL my friend Linda hosted. I have been wanting to knit this pattern for years and I am so glad I did. I might just have to knit it again, I enjoyed it so much!! I am super happy with the way it turned out, and it fits like a glove. Now here's hoping the weather is cooler tomorrow (as the weather-man promised!) so I can wear it :)

I used Elle Earth DK in the colourway Mud Flats held double and used a 5.5mm needle. If you have any questions feel free to ask. Shalom is a free pattern available on Ravelry HERE.




Thanks so much for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope I have inspired you to pick up your knitting needles :)
