This is one of those patterns that have been on my list for a while. I'm hoping to get to it soon.I love the yarn used for this but it is hard to find anymore, so I will have to find a suitable substitute. I love the 3/4 sleeves on this cardigan and it looks great with a belt. I think it would also look great with a button for the closure.

Again no picture to show what the pattern looks like
