FO: Dahlia Cardigan

I finally finished something! It seems like it’s been forever since I got to post about a finished knitting project. This may have taken me two months to finish, but I am oh so happy with the finished result. I’ll admit – at times the cardigan was a little boring, but I am so glad I stuck it out and finished it. 
You may recall that I ran into some trouble with this knit, due to my own error, but fixing it turned out to be much easier than I thought it would be – thankfully! All it took was a little grafting and cutting. So glad it was so simple!
I only made one modification – I added on 8 stitches in length. I didn’t want it to be too short, and it really came out the perfect length for me. I’m pretty short (5’3″ on a good day), and it fits me perfectly. For the body, I worked the 35.5″ size, but probably could have left a few inches off – there’s quite a bit of fabric in the front. I thought about going full sleeve, but I really like the look of a three quarter sleeve with a long sleeve underneath, so I stuck with that length and worked the arms for the 30″ size.
All in all, I’m very pleased with how this came out – it will definitely get a lot of wear this fall and winter! Next up on my plate are some Christmas gifts – I have 10 days to complete 3 gifts, and although it’s a pretty crazy deadline, they’re all relatively small gifts, so I think I can do it!
