It's All In the Details

When I first saw Mountain View Cardigan I fell in love with the sleeves - they were unlike anything I ever saw it was the details that got me for making this cardigan. I love the sleeves, the buttons I found that are pretty yet don't take away from the waist detailing. I love the lace panel on the back too.

Next, getting a good picture of the whole thing...not just the details. This took a long time to make - I used Knit Picks Stroll and have vowed NEVER to make such a fine gauge sweater again! Too hard on the hands.

It's a gorgeous pattern - and I love the yarn you chose! am sure you'll get lots of wear out of it - worth the skinny yarn effort!
