Good idea to make a cardigan out of the V8151, I might do that one day! Do you still have it in your closet? It should be 6 yrs old by now..

Great top! Thanks heaps for the tip about finding the grain with a magnifying glass and marking it with tape. I have tended to rely on guesswork with knits and it has not always paid off. I'll do this now- thanks!

Very nice - love the fabric and the buttons are really special - clever way to use this pattern!! Just finished a Marcy Tilton cardigan - review coming - and I think you ended up with the same results without buying another pattern!

Terrrific looking top and what a great idea to draft your cardigan from a favorite TNT pattern.

What an idea to make a cardigan of a t-shirt pattern. Lovely with the special buttons.

Very attractive cardigan, Nancy! Love animal prints these days. And oh that button store! I've already spent too much money there.

Great top, Nancy! I love the fabric and really appreciate the detailed closeup. No problem seeing it with just a click either.

I believe there's an extra http:// in your links -- I took it out and could see the photos. The buttons are spectacular! Great cardigan!

Nancy, that is wow fabric and you made a stunning top. I could not get your detail shots to open either, but when dh and I did my first reviews in a long time, we had an awful time getting the pictures right. I know that you will get it fixed and I am dying to see the close ups!

For some reason, the detail of the buttons isn't opening for me. Looks as if it is a top that you will really enjoy wearing right now and in the future.
