These cardigans were made using the free Ellie pattern by Berroco (designed by Maureen Basher) (http://www.berroco.com/patterns/ellie).
The cardigans were made in sizes 2 and 4, using the recommended yarn (Berroco Comfort DK, 3 balls of Rosebud (2723) and 4 balls of Teaberry (2730)) and hook sizes 4.5mm and 5.0mm. There was only a tiny amount of yarn left over.
The pattern states it requires an intermediate skill level, and it was relatively easy to follow, just watch for a few errors – one of these being the sleeve length instructions which differ between the text and the diagram (follow the text). The other errors are minor and easily avoided if you are careful to keep the stitch pattern constant.
I am very happy with the finished cardigans as they are very pretty, and have a great texture and a nice soft finish.
