It's finished! After basically a year since my first attempt, my Featherweight Cardigan is finished! And I absolutely love it.
It's perfect - open, flowy, lightweight yet warm. I just love everything about it. And the stripes make it fun and give it some color. I'm really glad I added the stripes, too. I think they add a lot.
I didn't make too many modifications, besides the stripes and knitting my collar in k3,p2 ribbing instead of st stitch. I stopped knitting the increases once I got to 54 arm stitches, which worked out great. One thing I remember from the first time I tried to knit it was that the arms were a little big, so I'm glad I stopped when I did.
I've got 4 other projects to finish up, hopefully in the next few weeks, and then I'm planning on getting a head start on my Christmas knitting!
