FO: Parker Cardigan
I finished this a while ago but never got around to posting the photos or blog post about it until now! This is the Parker Cardigan in a lovely shade of dark purple. I used some Vanna's Choice acrylic yarn that I bought on sale at the Michael's a long time ago. Even though it doesn't feel as soft as some wool does, it still feels very cozy and looks great! The instructions of the pattern were easy to follow and there are some interesting stitches involved that are easy to knit.
I purchased these vintage plum buttons from Etsy to go with the sweater. They match perfectly!
I wore a long sleeved shirt underneath the cardigan because it was a little bit chilly outside. The shorter sleeves of the cardigan make it great to wear on a nice Spring or Autumn day as well!
