the sophisticate cardigan

I am so excited to announce the release of an original flax & twine sweater design: the sophisticate cardigan (sizes 5, 7 and 9) AND at the same time host my first give-away. Please leave a comment below if you’d like to win a copy of this pattern and why. I will select the winner at random and announce it on Monday, September 19th. This is fun!
When my daughter turned five and a half something shifted – she went from flaunting pink tutus to demanding a little black dress. I call her the six-year-old sophisticate. This sweet fitted cardigan, with grown-up, ¾-length sleeves, was just what that little black dress asked for and is versatile enough to wear with her favorite jeans.
It has a sweet running stitch detail along the fronts and sleeve. One of my test knitters even added embroidery to it as well – adorable. You can find this sweater pattern for sale on Ravelry and in my Etsy Shop.

I hope some of you will make it for the sweet little lady in your life. Link to photos in the comments if you do. Happy knitting.
I get my hand cast off on Wednesday. I’m not sure how long it will take for my poor broken hand to get back to knitting form, but hopefully quickly! I miss it dearly!

**If you email me at flaxandtwine(at)gmail(dot)com, I’d be happy to send you the pattern. Others, I’m going to start a KAL to knit the sweater – you need only buy the pattern. Leave me or email me your ravelry name if you are interested!
