All bar the button

Plain knitting and large needles, really made the rest of this cardigan quick to knit.
In a very short time, another sleeve was done,

and then the border.  The border only went down the fronts and across the back, so they were quick to do.
 
By the time the borders were complete, the only sewing up was the sleeve seams.  All in all, despite the glitch at the beginning, these was a quick and enjoyable project. It needs one button, but that might be a while in coming.  I need some buttons for other projects, so I might save them up and get them all at the same time.
 
This cardigan was knit using Sirdar Babouska, a brushed chunky. 52% wool, 39% acrylic, 9% nylon
