Raindrop Cardigan from Textured Stitches

I recently finished the Raindrop Cardigan from Connie Chang Chinchio's Textured Stitches book.  This is a great pattern.  The finished cardigan fits well.  I wish I'd made the sleeves about 2" longer or shorter, but it's not a big deal.  I have super long arms, so I'm used to scrunching up sleeves.

I chose a 100% pima cotton to knit this to keep it from being too warm for Florida.  The weight turned out perfect for our cooler days, but I do have some trouble getting the collar to behave without the body of a wool.  Just something to think about.

Here is my Ravelry post.

Beautiful! I'm on my first cardigan, wish me luck. Also, your hair - I hadn't realized it's so long again. Are you keeping it like that? I loved the short hair on you, but that's just me ;-) !

Lovely cardie - such neat knitting! I too have long arms. In fact, I've got so used to having bracelet length on sleeves, I tend to knit them that way on purpose now!
