summer cardi

It's usually said that for every dress a girl buys she should also get a matching cardigan. This dress I made two years ago and only now have I managed to knit a little summer cardi to match. Better late than never, right ?
Changes: didn't have enough yarn so made the sleeves shorter and only one set of ruffles (and used the same yarn and needle size for the ruffles). The button band was made by picking up stitches along the edges and knitting in garter stitch for 8 rows.

Pattern: Maple Street Cardigan by Cecily Glowik MacDonald (Interweave Knits Fall 09).
Yarn: Schachenmayr Nomotta Punto (5 skeins)
Needles: 4.0 mm
