My Soay Cardi c’est fini!  This was my entry to MadMay2012 (Madelinetosh Madness).

I used Tosh Pashmina, my first time knitting with this yarn and it is pure buttah!!  I wanted to use this yarn for a totally different pattern, but as it sat in my yarn bin, my pattern choice changed many times.  I’m glad I finally chose this design because I could customize it.  I love that it is feminine with the bits of lace and the silk content in the yarn makes it so light and luxurious.

I have a bunch of it leftover which is fantastic because I want to knit this little number from Coastal Kids for Kiki and Pashmina would be perfect for it!  Isn’t Wee Wildflower so cute?  So is Little Oak, aww!  I love the whole collection!!

Mods: I lengthened the cardigan slightly (just a tad under 2 inches longer than the original), shortened the sleeves and added the lace motif to the back for fun.

This cardigan works perfectly over a sundress like the first one I knit or over jeans and a tee on cooler spring days.
