This cardigan is one of the main reasons I tracked down this individual issue and bought it. I love it! The color is pretty and you did a great job putting it together.

It's gorgeous and the buttons are a lovely feature at the band with the gathers. Love this a lot!

This is simply beautiful. It was my favorite pattern from that issue and I'm looking forward to making it. Thanks for all the great pointers.

Love your version of this! Thanks for all of the tips especially to make a larger size or increase the side seams. I'm definitely putting this one on my list to sew now!

I've been tempted with this cardigan and your merino wool may have tipped me over the edge.

Those gathers look great as well as your sassy contrasting buttons!

Nice cardigan! That issue has some good stuff in it, I bought it in part because of this pattern. You did a great job on it, it looked hard to me but your result looks very professional

Thanks for the review. I'm always very grateful for reviews which let me know about the sizing, and since I need a 42 with Burda too I will certainly heed your advice. The fabric and the colour looks perfect for this pattern.

Stunning cardigan! Love the gathers!

So thrilled you saw the reviews and allocated more in the sides. This is fabulous, and I really appreciate your tip about decreasing the SA on the bands as it's something I hadn't thought about. I usually use a smaller SA for knits but on this one, I had made everything 5/8".....I will definitely use a smaller one on the bands next time as it is a PITA! Thanks for a great review!
