My "i didn't make it to Paris" cardigan

Bento and I were due to have springtime in Paris but due to illness we had to cancel our trip so I spent the time knitting and catching up on movies (all about my mother; blame it on fidel; dogtooth and he's just not that into you.) I ended up making this scandi inspired cosy cardigan (from stitch and bitch 2). And its become such a staple I can't believe I ever lived without it.

3 hour sweater - my foot

Ok so the pattern is the 3 hour sweater. Not true but it is a fairly quick knit. I'm quite pleased with the outcome but would make it perhaps an inch longer.
Would also like to try it in all one colour. This was stash busting as I had 2 skeins of wool that I wasn't sure what to do with them. (One left over from bento's mittens; and one a gift from my friend Clare).  So a combination was born.
