- Minimalist Cardigan Review by susan lehtinen
I just finished the Minimalist Cardigan this week. Wore it for the first time yesterday to rave reviews. I used cotton yarn so it's a great weight and finish to be used instead of a suit jacket when looking for "business casual". Also the cotton can be laundered easily. The instructions were flawless. The fit was excellent (of course I always tweak things a little so I put darts in the back and a short row in the front to provide some extra room for the girls). Without any alteration, the sleeve fit very well into the body and the shoulders were well proportioned. The garment is easy to wear -- it hangs well from the shoulders. It was a bit tedious knitting acres of seed stitch but the overall effect was lovely. I like the shape so much I'm thinking of making it again -- maybe a different stitch.

- Review by Beth Bogs
Just finished this sweater for my daughter. Loved this pattern - the only improvement would be a top-down raglan version as I never look forward to sewing all those seams. That said, after careful blocking the sweater went together beautifully. The moss stitch, tho'' a bit tedious, gives this sweater a wonderful feel and body. I''ll make this one again... for myself next time!
