Karen Millen Inspired Cardigan

Pattern: Karen Millen Cardigan (personal pattern, inspired by RTW design)
Yarn: Alize Cashmira 100% wool, white, black and a very small quantity of red, 300 g total
Needle: 3,5 mm rib, 4 mm body
Time to knit: appr. three weeks with breaks

Gaby wanted a simple cardigan for school and liked the unostentatious and elegant geometric design of this Karen Millen block striped cardigan. I had my doubts in the course of knitting, actually at one point I was about to abandon the pattern altogether and to knit the Drops stranded cardigan that I used for the hat pattern. But now, that I see it done and worn, I'm glad I finished it and Gaby really likes it. This is how she wore it today to school (not exactly how I had planned this photosession, I would have preferred black jeans and a black top under the cardigan :)

Pictures taken in front of my Alma mater - Sofia University, today on her way back from school.
