I bought this pattern a couple of months ago, I just loved the cardi but I wanted to make it a little longer as I am a large woman and things that focus on the waist are not good lol so my cardi is a few inches longer. I only do easy knits now because I get very sore wrists & fingers, this is why I wanted to learn crochet as it's a lot easier on the joints I feel.
I really liked the red & pink but all the colours in this wool by Sirdar are wonderful and it knits up very quickly as it's a super chunky, 60% acrylic 25% cotton & 15% wool it has every thing I like, colour and ease of knit plus knit quick :) so I don't get chance to get board before it's finished.
You can see this lovely wool up close here in these photos and the wool/yarn is available here to buy. This isn't where I bought mine from, but I just put a link in so you can see for your self the colours & price of the yarn along with the patterns that use this wool/yarn. I hope you like it I love it and think I well may make another one in green shades as I also think when the Spring/Summer comes they will both be so nice to keep the chill off. Let me know if you have knitted anything lately I'd love to see. Dxx
