Love this cardigan, except I’ve sewn the buttons on really badly and they constantly fall off! I knocked a star off my ‘star rating’ simply because I don’t think drop shoulders are terribly flattering, but I already knew that and it didn’t stop me from knitting this.

I like the little flash of purple of the pocket lining.

The button bands are particularly well designed and give a really good finish to the front.
