WIP - The Cardigan

I am loving my current WIP, a simple straight forward cardigan which looks quite intricate due to the self-patterning yarn. The Sirdar Crofter will present you with a Fair Isle mock pattern and is probably one of the coolest yarns I have worked with so far.
Mixed with the Sirdar Country Style the two colour ways totally compliment each other and make for a light but not boring looking cardigan.
I would have never chosen these two colours on their own or even thought about using them together but when I browsed my favourite online store Deramores, I came across a pattern for a cardigan and fell in love with it straight away. For the first time every I bought a pattern and the exact suggested yarns within.

It does scare me a little bit because I have never worked like that before, I am more a kind of "winging-it-knitter". But I have high hopes for this one (even though I said that about almost every thing I knitted recently).
