(Kn)it's so fine

Ran across this pattern in a recent Vogue Knitting Magazine.  It's one of those fabulous classic cardigans that looks oh so smooth and professional because it's knit on smallish (US size 3)  needles.  Notice how the subtle tonal shades of the hand-dyed yarn give the fabric dimension without distracting from the delicate pattern.  

Here's a closeup of the pattern stitch which is a fairly easy combination of eyelets and two-stitch cable twists that you can work without a cable needle.  The pattern has a good range of sizes - 37" - 50" bust. 

Here's a close-up of the stitch detail - easy enough to work without stressing yourself out and interesting enough to keep you from getting bored. 

This sweater would be spectacular in Prism Saki Layers, which has an amazingly subtle and complex color that is non-pooling, non-striping, and non-repeating. So beautiful, and such generous yardage that you'll only need 4 or 5 skeins - see how gorgeous the colors are!
