Effortless Is Finished

My daughter loves her new Christmas sweater, the Effortless Cardigan.  I am quite sure that it's going to drape more casually as it's worn and washed.  It's only had a brief blocking so far due to lack of time.  The sleeves are longer than what the pattern suggested.  This was at Jessica's request.

Designed by Hannah Fettig

Size:   Small
(Second size listed)
Needles: US #7/4.5 mm

Yarn: Tosh DK - 5 skeins
Color - gossamer
Note:  Originally Jessica wanted the color which was on the sample sweater in the picture.  The name of the color is gossamer and to both of us it appeared to be blue/gray.  However, on receiving the yarn we could see that it was definitely beige with a hint of pink.  Fortunately Jessica liked the new color, too.  The pattern is well-written and it an easy knit.
