My Shalom *grins*
I'm really pleased with it; it fits just like I wanted and I love the modifications I made (detailed on my Ravelry project page). I loved the pattern, but I don't find cardigans that button only at the neck particularly flattering. Plus I wanted to make it in aran/worsted weight rather than chunky, which I think makes it a little more wearable.
Luckily, quite a few other projects on Ravelry had similar ideas, so I combined a lot of different mods to get it the way I wanted.
I love the twisted rib yoke, and I'm really happy with the buttons I chose - the goldy/bronzey colour works really well with the yarn:
Yarn: Stylecraft Special Aran with wool - a 400g ball on mostly acrylic with about 20% wool. It's not a luxurious yarn, but it wears well and I think it works pretty well for cardigans
Pattern: Shalom by Meghan McFarlane
Modifications: aran weight, added button band all the way down (with additional waist and hip shaping as required), added sleeves
And the obligatory shot of me wearing it and trying not to look stern or unhappy (because I'm not - I love it *laughs*)
It's Friday, you know what to do... Visit Tami's, Natural Suburbia and Wisdom Begins in Wonder. Have a great weekend
