Vintage inspired Joy
I finally finished sewing up my Joy cardigan, from Vintage Knits. It turned out pretty well for the most part. I really like the way the stitch pattern changes at the waist--I think that makes it a flattering fit. I also like the subtlety of the chevron pattern. However, the fit around the arms is a bit funny on this sweater. I might suggest that it has to do with my yarn substitution, but I think I've noticed similar fit issues on other knitters who have made this pattern.
Overall, not too shabby, and I could use a few more lightweight cardigans in my wardrobe.
I found some cute little square shell buttons for this one. [Ravelry link]
