Wow, that looks great! I just love that casual look of the jacket, length is great! I do have that pattern here but didnīt get around to sewing it yet... That will have to change! I think this version without collar better than this huge collar you had on the last cardigan.

I covet your sweator knit. It is a perfect match for the pattern. It is so nice that your evil twin counts sewing skills amongst her other fine qualities.

So who is modeling the lovely cardigan? Is it Maria or is it Belinda?

Hmmm - after that information about Belinda I am so curious to see her wearing this (hehe). Seriously, this is a great-looking casual cardigan!

Great Swap page! I need to get more organized... I love the cardigan; I think you'll be happier with it iin a more substantial knit. The color looks great on my computer, and it looks like it fits into your swap plan perfectly.

The sweater has "lovely bones" and I can see where you might like a heavier knit that would speak more highly of the beautiful lines. Despite that, it is a pretty piece. It's a seamstress's bane to be critical about stuff no one else will ever notice! I love the SWAP plan. I'm so impressed.

OMG! I love your SWAP page. I like the cardigan -- kinda plain, but it could calm down some loud pants or camisole underneath.

Thank you all! bunz - I think you're right. The top button should have been just a little bit higher... Must do better next time :-)
Sue - The Missoni knit is rather thick (and bulky). I've left out the darts and think I might need to use some of the added seam allowance, but I think it'll work out good!

I think it looks very nice. I hadn't even consered getting this one; now I might. Do you think it would work in a bulky knit?

This is a great looking cardigan. Much more stylish than the KS one I made last year. Love the Missoni knit fabric too.

What a great pattern, Maria. Just looking at it, I wonder if the buttons start a bit low. The fit looks perfect.

Maria, I like your sweater and I like your swap page. You've inspired me to try some Onion patterns. I will enjoy checking back and seeing your finished swap garments. Keep on sewing!

I like the lines of this cardigan -- it's anything but boring. Good luck on the next two.

I guess one person's 'boring' is another person's 'elegant' - I think you have an elegant cardigan!
