Postcard Cardigan Take 2

I finished my second Postcard Cardigan. The first one I made with Brooklyn Tweed's Loft yarn, which sadly I learned I was allergic to. So I made a second one with Anzula Squishy yarn in the colorway "sexy". I am thrilled with how it turned out.
 
I apologize for all the finished pictures, but sometimes I have just as much fun taking pictures as I do knitting it.
 
 
 









 
Yay a finished knit I can wear :) I'm still unsure about releasing the pattern. If you are interested in test knitting it for me leave me a message.
 
FYI test knitters skills needed for this knit:
You must be able to knit, purl, graft (Kitchener stitch), increase, knit lace & decrease.

PLEASE release this!! I know to execute those stitches you said are needed to knit the cardigan, but I've never knit a garment or else I'd test knit in a second!

I love all the photos, keep them coming. You my dear are blessed with a gift and I can't wait to knit my own postcard cardigan. I was waiting until I finished my Acer, but now I don't want to wait.

Very stunning sweater and lovely photos. I'd need to know the time frame you're thinking of for a test knitter, but I might be interested. This is a great sweater and really needs to be a pattern.

Oh, and I just saw you might need test knitters for this pattern. It would depend on the deadline and yarn requirements, but I'm definitely interested.
