I am done! Finished this cardigan in 3 weeks, and I am very happy :)
Pattern: Hooray by veera, test knitting so the pattern has not been published yet
Yarn: Madelinetosh Tosh Merino DK, Denim, 4.5 skeins (about 1,025 yards)
Needles: 4.5mm and 4mm, US 6 & 7, circulars and DPNs
(1) I did I-cord BO all around the front, and the cuffs.
Coincidentally, other test-knitter Larisa has done the same, I did not realize until later.
(2) Added 3 stitches under arms.
The buttons are temporary. I am looking for gold buttons, instead of silver.
So, I am happily went back to my previous almost-finishing project. Now I am binding off the edges, and, for the first time, using “crocheted BO” technique. It’s interesting, easy, and quite fun.
The color is hard to capture. It’s actually russet red / brown and beautiful.

Thank you Shelly! Eventually I picked a completely different kind of buttons for it :)
I love it! I can't believe you did that in three weeks. Wow.
Thanks, Retta! I really worked hard on this :)
