Lovely cardigan. I admired it in the magazine but thought it would be impossible to find matching knit and ribbing. Never thought to look for it at JoAnne's.

I never saw your first review...I love this cardi on you! It is really a cool looking cardi, style is fantastic. I would be scared of a pattern that I couldn't read so you are a very brave girl!

That is one very stylish and cute cardi! Why, oh why did you have to sew it from a pattern magazine I don't own..... LOL?!!! How does one buy an issue of La Mia Boutique?

Cardigan's are one of my favorite wardrobe pieces...yours is wonderful. I love the contrast ribbing detail. Still hoping I can snag a copy of that La Mia issue.
