Fitted Cardigan

Pattern: Version 3 of Fitted Cardigan from Jo Sharp Knit Issue 3.
Yarn: Jo Sharp Alpaca Kid Lustre, color 852 Vintage, 7 seven skeins and a smidge of 8th. I have enough left to knit myself a pair of Fetching.
Needles: US 5 for the body and US 3 for the button band and neckband.
Modifications: I added several inches to the total length of the cardigan. I used one size smaller needles for the body to get guage, something I do almost every time as I am a fairly loose knitter. I used US#3 needles for the neckband and button band.
More details here.

Yarn: Jade Sapphire Lacy Lamb, one skein with very little left over
Needles: Knitpicks Circular, US #2
