Last week I finished my shalom cardigan. I had some trouble finding the right buttons (my mind was set on wood, but the shop didn't have the right size), but when I sorted throguh my own stash I found the perfect ones. Problem solved. And I kind of love that both the yarn and the buttons are thrift shop finds, so that makes this a rather inexpensive sweater...

The pattern is based on the Shalom, but I made a lot of changes. I used thinner yarn, so thinner needles, a bigger size (cast on more stitches), buttons all the way down and I added sleeves. It came out just the way I hoped.

    that yarn was such a grand find! the buttons are perfect. it fits you wonderfully! and you look good, my friend!

    1. Thanks! I love it ;-)
