I made this cardigan for my boyfriend using the Polka Drops free pattern that catchannette had used for her Go Olive Male Cardigan project. I really loved that project and decided to try my hand at it.
My boyfriend picked out the fabric and I chose buttons and knit ribbing to match. The pattern was really easy to use, despite being in Japanese. Originally I had made it without the pockets but after one wear, my boyfriend requested pockets, so I added them on afterwards.
