Introduction: Lion Brand Challenge - Cotton Ease Cardi of Love
[http://cache.lionbrand.com//yarns/newcottonease.html Cotton Ease]Knitty''Fitted Knits''Cropped Cardigan with Leaf TiesI adore this cardigan, and it's my very first sweater! If only winter would end and I could wear it! The pattern I used was Stefanie Japel's Cropped Cardigan with Leaf Ties. The pattern is available in the book Fitted Knits and as a free pattern on Knitty. The yarn I used was Lion Brand's Cotton Ease, a yummy cotton acrylic blend of vegan goodness. I used just under four skeins of the violet colorway. The only changes I made to the pattern were that I made the armholes a bit bigger and I used a purchased closure instead of the leaf ties.
