This is a top down, swingy cardigan, designed to fit people of all body shapes and sizes. Once you get going, it's very easy and good in front of a television or during interventions, like when your 5 year old is putting Daddy's underwear in the freezer (this happened last Thanksgiving, I swear.)

4 stitches/inch on US size 9 (UK 5.5mm) needles.

I love bright, clear colors against neutral backgrounds and tend to design with these palettes in mind. I love when people take my designs, alter an edge or choose some other colors. I'm one of those people who thinks we're all creative in some way, whether we're knitting, designing, gardening or playing a sport. It just all comes out in different ways!
