Cardigan "Lotus"

































This project took a little more than a month and a lot of frustration: I had to start over a couple of times because I made a mistake in sizing.
The yarn used is Jo Sharp DK wool in color "Brocade" - one of my favorite yarns. There are crochet details on sleeves, and I learned how to crochet buttons!

I love all of your Fos but this cardigan is spectacular! The details and the shaping! Summer Flowers runs a close second. great work.

This is beautiful! The details are wonderful and yes the buttons are great too.

ana, I took it from this site

I don't see charts there anymore, maybe I don't look in the right place.
Hope it helps.

Thank you, I see it and there is a chart but I don't know the language it's in and I'm not a skilled enough knitter to be able to follow the chart.

The sweater is beautiful!

Ana, if you would like, I can translate it for you. Here is the story: I belong to a Russian knitting club, and one lady there translated this pattern from Portuguese to Russian. I can translate from Russian for you, however can't vouch for total accuracy as far as the original goes.
I knitted following instructions, but changed the number of stitches - because of my gauge etc.
