FO: Olearia Cardigan

Hobbit’s Olearia Cardigan is finished and has acquired green rocket buttons. She was unimpressed by the selection I had available so we looked at some online (from Textile Garden) and she chose the green rockets very quickly and would not be swayed.

I have talked about the pattern previously, it continued to be easy to follow. I have made the sleeves about 3/4 of an inch longer than the pattern called for but have made no other modifications. It used only 6 of my 7 balls of yarn (though I knew I had extra) so still need to think up a way to use that ball up.
