Another Finished Pink Sweater!

Featherweight cardigan in Pop Rocks 
This is the Featherweight Cardigan, knit in Madelinetosh Tosh Sock in the (sadly, now discontinued) Pop Rocks colorway.  I followed the pattern exactly for the smallest size*, except for the edgings.  I used a K3, P1 rib for the lower edge, the sleeve cuffs and the front sections of the front/neck bands.  The back neck section was worked as K2, P2 so it would draw in more and fit properly.  The change in rib is not noticeable unless I point it out, which I'm only doing here on the blog.  The general public will never know.

This is the fourth time I've knit this pattern.  Not only is it a fun pattern to knit, but the cardigan goes with everything.  It can dress up or down, looks good with jeans or a skirt and generally just works in any situation.

This is the third pink sweater I've knit this year, for those of you who are counting.

*It looks like there's an updated version of the pattern with a smaller size now, but the version I knit was for about a finished 36 inch bust measurement.
