Charcoal, soft and sweet. Deep in color and soothing to pass through my fingers, it's truly beautiful yarn. Now I'm happy to have it on my shoulders, keeping me warm. Cold days we've had this late in the spring.

Pattern: Shalom Cardigan by Meghan McFarlane
Yarn: Cascade 220 Wool
Needles: 6mm

Changed the pattern a bit. Started with casting on 87 sts and followed increases as written, added sleeves. The finished cardigan is quite airy, but i think it's just perfect.

Hello Veera, i really like this cardigan and the pattern is also in french! great!
I started the shall of Orlane but it's quite difficult for me to translate it...i don't understand very well the beginning! it's a shame, isn't it?! hihihihi
