Remember my cherries dress for the Outfit-A-Long 2015? I did finish the dress on time, but the cardigan took me a little longer to finish. The deadline was the 1st of August. I finished the Vianne on the 10th of August.
I loved this pattern! The back has an interesting lace detail and once you get to know the stitch repeats, it's very easy. Unfortunately the first time I worked on the back piece I made a lot of mistakes. Those mistakes which aren't big ones, but you notice them anyhow. My knitting group made up of co-workers gave me the advice to start over. I also had some reservations about the size I started to knit, but once again my co-workers gave some great advice and said the size was perfect.
And I hate picking up stitches, but this helped me a lot.

The buttons are purple mother-of-pearl and have a little flower engraved on them. The top buttons tends to pop open, so I'm thinking about removing the button and sewing the buttonhole shut.

Did I tell you how much I love this cardigan? :D
