Planalto Cardigan Finished

This was quite outside my comfort level as far as yarn choices. It was cotton and viscose (translated: shiny rayon) Mariposa by Louisa Harding, and the pattern was also Louisa Harding, from the Hummingbirds pattern book. It was a very easy and fast knit, but the yarn caught on everything - even my rough hands. I continually was putting on hand lotion. But in the end, I was extremely happy with the outcome, and the fit, and the drape. The pattern called for more buttons but I liked a single one.
