It's absolutely gorgeous -- delicate, but not at all twee. I love the color combination of the yarn and the buttons.

Beautiful! I've never liked Kidsilk haze jelly but i have to admit it looks amazing used for this cardigan. Excuse my stupidity, but I can't seem to find the Paypal link on your website; where is it? Must have pattern now!!! :)

Stacy said...

I love this! It will go on my to do list once I get done with a couple of looming projects!

Megan said...

Wow Melissa, that is fabulous. I love the colors just as much as the pattern. And those buttons! So elegant and perfectly appropriate for tea time!

Oooh! Melissa, that sweater is so beautiful. I'm swooning over it all over again. (The buttons are the perfect touch.) The photo looks fabulous, too - you look lovely.

Liz said...

I LOVE IT! I've been looking for a sweater pattern for KSH for awhile and this is IT!

Melissa said...

Shayo,

The buy now button is in the right side bar, right under the small picture and "grannie smith cardigan" $5.00. Maybe it's just not showing up in your browser? I can also email you the pattern manually if you go to paypal and transfer $5 to me at neoknits AT yahoo DOT com.

Yay! How do you do it? Another successful project, with a pattern to boot! I haven't knit with KidSilk Haze yet. How does it feel to wear? Itchy at all? So pretty. Love the color you chose, too. :)

Melissa,
I can't believe I am just seeing this for the first time tonight, but I must say how lovely and delicious your new fabulous design is! WOW! You have so much talent (and then some!).xo-anjo

amanda said...

holy moly. I love it. And of course, the fact that it is knit up in my FAVORITE color just adds to its beauty. I may have to bump this up in my project list. I'd be interested in doing a knit along!

brewerburns said...

Wow. That is a fantastic cardigan. Very, very nice.

Colette said...

I have been planning on getting this pattern since the first time I saw it - I think it is lovely!

There is a lot of information on special sizing and fitting in BGK -the book was worth it price just for that alone.

JoHunter said...

Please please let there be a KAL for this, I have the yarn in hand and am swatching now. *swoon*

V said...

I really love your pattern -- I just bought a copy and I'm dying to get started. I also just saw the pattern you designed for MagKnits and it's lovely. I hope you keep doing lots of designing! Thanks for the lovely patterns.

Jenni said...

Kathryn Noland

I love this pattern and have so many friends knitting it. I want to knit it also.

Melissa said...

Hi Kathryn,

Sure, I would be willing to take a money order. Please contact me at neoknits AT yahoo dot com and I'll give you my address.

Beautiful pattern, beautiful choice of yarn, beautiful styling--but why a bouillon cup?

Anise Shaw said...

This cardigan has a wonderful colour, almost exactly like some mohair I just bought in Guangdong! I'm making a cardigan out of it too because my old one died...

Thanks for sharing the picture. I'm not sure about the buttons... they make the piece look a little less vintage than I would like.

Just found your site and this sweater is going to the top of my queue. Lovely.

I just found and love the pattern. I'm wondering how accurate your yarn requirements are. I would probably make a size 36--are 4 skeins truly enough or do I need to splurge for the 5th?

Thanks!

Melissa said...

Anonymous! Sorry I don't know how else to contact you.

I would say the yarn requirements are fairly accurate with some wiggle room for those that knit tighter/looser. I haven't heard any problems with people running out of yarn, so you should be good with the 4 skeins.
