Ruby Tea Leaves

I’m so excited to be showing you my finished (ok, will need to block it) Tea Leaves cardi.  I love it and I managed to score the last of the two most perfect buttons today a local wool store. My mum happend to be visiting today, so she offered to take a couple of pictures for me, as I was busting to share the cardi with you all.  I can honestly say this is one of the easiest patterns to follow and it fits beautifully.  I knitted the 36″ size.  I added a little length to the sleeves and a little extra to the body to get a better fit, but otherwise, the shaping is perfect.  If you have been contemplating knitting this, I say go ahead and treat yourself.  You won’t be disappointed.  My Ravelry notes are here.

Now go forth and knit!  Jacinta x
