tea leaves cardigan

I finished knitting my Tea Leaves cardigan yesterday and now that I have modeled it for you I will be packing it away for the cooler months.

I think the sweater came together nicely and I am happy with the yarn choice.
The fit is a little looser then I expected but, it is by no means too big either.
I'm not sure how I will style it in the future but, for now terry shorts and a bathing suit were all I could muster up the strength to put on this morning. It's 90 degrees after all.

Pattern: Tea Leaves Cardigan
Yarn- Madelinetosh DK
Color Vermillion
Needles 6 and 7
No modifications.

Perfect! I've had Tea Leaves in my queue for ages. I love Tosh yarns, so I'm sure it feels amazing. Well done!

Ooh, this looks lovely, if not very summery!

this is absolutely beautiful. i'm quite envious- i've been wanting one of these cardigans for ages but am way too lazy to knit one...!

i love the colour of your yarn and it will be such a treat to pull out of your closet come autumn.
