Between bigger (and more time consuming) projects, I have knitted a cardigan for my goddaughter, following a (German) pattern I found online.
It was more of a test and it worked out fine. If ever I plan on making another I might follow the magazin’s color suggestions. Isn’t that pretty in red and green?
Other than that, I changed the pattern slightly: more buttons, different edging (icord – you probably knew that already) and contrasting colors everywhere (neckline, front, sleeves and body trim).
