“Windchill” buttonless DK Cardigan

Finished another sweater :). I’m at the point in my sweater knitting “career” where I have to have one on the needles.  Will be looking for another one to start tonight.  The Bruins are out of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Hockey season is over so I might be knitting less and catching up on everything I’ve ignored since hockey season began :).  This sweater is super easy.  An adventurous beginner knitter could do this.  It’s knit from the top down. The pattern is well written.  No buttons or button holes (sweeeeeeeet).  The name of the pattern is ‘Windchill’ by Melissa LaBarre. First time knitting any of her patterns.  I wear a size 8/10 and I made the 35 1/2 size.  It’s not meant to close in the front. The pattern says to pick the size that is closest to your bust measurement without going over.  That worked for me.  It fits great.  My gauge was maybe one stitch bigger than the pattern called for.  It all worked out.  The yarn is Rowan Pure Wool Superwash  Color #1368 which if I remember right is named “putty”.
