This one was tough going - I think the pattern had been translated, and I spent so much time trying to puzzle out what was going on. In hindsight, I should have used a basic cardigan and just added the design elements. I’ll know better next time.

I think it looks lovely and beautifully knit and I like the colors combination you used.

Beautifully done! I am curious, is there intarsia on the back, also? If you were to make this sweater again, would you have combined duplicate stitch with the intarsia?

Thank you! Yes, the back is similarly intarsia, because the cardigan is knitted bottom up, splits for the front and back just below where the sleeves join. I’ll have to look up duplicate stitch, I don’t know what it is!

Okay, looked it up, and yes, I really think the small ‘spot’ flowers would be better done with duplicate stitching. Less hassle, smoother and neater. Thank you very much for the suggestion.
