Which comes first, the pattern or the yarn?

In this case, the pattern! We spotted it while walking the TNNA show and ran up to the Knit One, Crochet Too booth when we saw this garment. We bought the yarn because it looked so great knitted up!

It's called, "Hey, Teach!" and it uses Knit One, Crochet Too's 2nd Time Cotton yarn. The best part, the pattern is FREE. It's a pattern on knitty.com. 2nd Time Cotton is REALLY soft. It gives the garment such a light and lacy feel, yet you are still knitting on an aran weight yarn!

I hope you love this little cardigan as much as we do! Here's all the details so you can knit it up for yourself:

Sizes: XS (S, M, L, 1X, 2X, 3X)
Completed Chest Measurment: 32.25 (35.5, 39, 43, 46.75, 50.75, 55)"
