I am pleased to announce that test knit request for my next pattern release – the Sweetpea Cardigan – has now been sent out. A day later than I had hoped after I locked myself out of the house yesterday afternoon (!) but hey ho!

This pattern is made in one piece, with no seams, and is quick enough to work up in one day or a few evenings!
