I love this style, and would quite happily knit one for myself. The hunt for buttons will go on. I managed to get yarn yesterday, but not buttons, so I'll be visiting another shop.
This cardigan has been knit using Rico Fashion Country Aran, colour aubergine and pattern number 131. It's been a joy to knit.
When the buttons are on, I'll give you a final look. Now on the needles are socks. Jonathan has asked for work socks as he's worn through the ones I made him before.
