I loved this project – relatively quick, ingenious construction, a perfect combination of yarns with silk for softness, sheen, and drape, and linen for structure.  It’s a little oversize, but that’s the way it fits best, and it’s the perfect weight for spring and summer.  I wish I had time (and patience) to knit more in other colors, there are so many beautiful Shibui Knit colors that would be perfect for this cardigan!
