Cardigan Raye

Pattern: Phildar's Cardigan Raye, previously available at their website in French, and in English at Unfortunately, it is no longer available at either site. [UPDATE: I used The Wayback Machine to find it, and I now have it in three PDF files, which I will gladly send to you.]

Yarn: The exact yarns called for, Phildar Licorne, Plaisance, and Sunset. It was ordered from a shop in the Netherlands that carries all Phildar yarns, accepts Paypal, and speaks English, They also carried the hot pink satin hook-and-eye tape called for for the front closure. The attraction of this sweater for me was the color sequence, thus substitution was not a possibility.

I made the second largest size, and ran out of both the orange Plaisance (used at the top) and the turquoise Sunset (sparkly yarn carried along with turquoise cotton Licorne).
