This is a sweater that I had to make after I saw my friend, Pam S. wearing hers. It was beautiful and the green was perfect for her. I immediately added Sprössling to my must-make queue. This was a couple of years ago. Little by little, I'm working through the projects in my stash.
* 6 x 50 gram skeins
Color #08 - Lilac
This is tightly plied yarn that gives great stitch definition and relaxes beautifully when blocked.
I purchased the yarn back on July 10, 2010 and it sat in my stash until April of this year. I bought it at Wooden Spools in Englewood (Denver), Colorado - an excellent shop with lots of bargains to be found. It was a bargain at only $4.00/skein.
Needles: US 3/3.25 mm & US 4/3/5 mm
* Notes: I 'think' I used only 6 skeins, but it might have been 7. I lost track.

I wouldn't hesitate to make this cardigan again, perhaps changing the lace pattern just for variety and using the basic design as the template. It's such a wearable sweater. The pattern is excellent, well-written.
Hello just came across your blog. If you don't find the buttons you're looking for, why not knit some frog closures.
Good idea and I'll certainly keep that in mind if I don't find buttons that I like. Thanks!
