I'm leaving the issue of fastening the cardigan for now. The reason for this is because my mum very, very, rarely fastens her cardigans. If she does, it's usually snowing!
I've been thinking about the pattern, and the possibility of publication on somewhere like Magknits (assuming Kerrie would take it).
1. More people would get access to it than the twenty-or-so regular readers who pop by here
2. I like sharing
3. I'm quite pround of it
1. Somewhere like knitty wouldn't take it becuase I've blogged about it
2. I don't have the confidence to do multiple sizes
3. I don't have the confidence to publish a proper adult garment
4. It looks too similar to Stef Japel's stuff to be published
5. I have weird row gauge and the pattern wouldn't work without it!
So, having said all that, the notes will be up as soon as I've found all the bits of paper and deciphered my own handwriting!
ETA - pattern notes now available here.

That is such a great color! I love it. If I were you, I'd at least try to get it published.By aimee noel, at Monday, 09 January, 2006

It's a loverly cardi. Great work, and I wouldn't mind seeing the pattern specs for it. (oh... and I never close my cardigans/jackets/hoodies/coats either. Never have - funny that.)By Nanc, at Monday, 09 January, 2006
I love it. You do great work. I like having it open. I am also not a buttoner, zipper, I am a flapper! I just dont like to bundle up I guess!By ObsessiveCompulsive Crafter, at Friday, 13 January, 2006
Oh Amy the Arien cardigan is just beautiul. The colour is wonderful and will be versatile enough to get lots of wear. Gee, you really are a lovely daughter. Good luck with your final year of study too.By , at Saturday, 14 January, 2006
