BE-YOU-TEE-FUL!!! So glad I read the full review that you had used your own sleeeve and back pieces. I want to go for the result you got! ELEGANT! I've taken notes and will work on this for my cardi. Thanks--wear with pride! Carla

Beautiful cardi-wrap! That fabric looks so luxurious and I really like that shell stitch finish.

Wow, shell stitching. I was considering this as a way of finishing off knits and now I'm convinced. The result is spectacular on your cardi. Lovely top, lovely fabric and thanks for the great review.

Thanks for the shell stitching idea!! I also like your wearing idea for using a belt as I hadn't seen that one.

This looks EXACTLY like mine that I got at Anthropologie in NYC last winter. It's my fav sweater and I am looking to make a black one. So on that note, thanks thanks thanks. I will be making this and now I shall check Emma One Sock for fabric. Beautiful. Thanks again.

Your wrap looks beautiful. The fabric is gorgeous and your alterations and especially edge finish make it really special.

The shell stitch! Yes!!!!! I'd forgotten this, and it does leave a nice edge. Yours turned out beautifully and the fabric is indeed luscious.

It's lovely and your review is very helpful. My fabric for the short version came today; I plan to try your edge finish.

Thanks for your very helpful review. I love the changes you've made and the fabric does look very nice. Even the camera knows good fabric!

Wow - it looks fantastic. It's nice to see this in a heavier weight. Thanks for your detailed review.

Great results. I love your shell stitch finish and thank you for the tip about the sleeve cap ease.

Thanks for posting this review. I was wondering what the shorter version would look like. Yours looks great!
