This morning I found the perfect single button for the Jawbreaker Cardigan, and sewed it on this afternoon. Behold, the loveliness of my sister's Christmas present:
Here's a closeup of the pretty little button:
I feel so accomplished!
Pattern: Jawbreaker Cardigan by Kendra Cray from Interweave Knits Winter 2006
Size: 37 1/2"
Yarn: Rowan Plaid in "Moonlight Wave", 6 balls (the last ball was used solely for the collar; about half the skein remained when finished)
Needle size: Size 11 for the ribbing, Size 13 for the body. The pattern calls for size 10.5 for the ribbing and 11 for the body, but I knit tightly and had to go up a size to achieve gauge.
Satisfaction with end product: *beam* I like it! I hope Sis does. (I hope it fits her.)
