Phildar Ete for a short cardigan!

Update: This yarn offer has been taken and is no longer available.

Dive into this: 15 brand-spankin' new skeins of Phildar Ete in Brousse, a khaki green. This is one of Phildar's new ribbon yarns for 2005. 100% cotton. Hand-wash. 7-8 US (4-5mm) needles, 10 sts and 14 rows 4"x4" (10x10 cm) square, 68yds (63 m) per 1.76 oz (50 gram) skein. This yarn is a lightweight ribbon cotton that reminds me of a finer version of Rowan's Cotton Tape.

I had several projects in mind when I bought this yarn, and this is the one that tickled my fancy the most because it's so utterly fabulous:

Short vintage-style cardigan with single closure from Phildar Tendances Famille Summer 2005; 15 skeins makes up to the largest size 50/52 with a couple to spare! I like this cardigan because not only is it cute and wearable, it's knit in what Phildar calls "kimono style", in one single piece.

NOTE: This pattern is not included with the yarn. But I will send the pattern book IN FRENCH to whomever I send this yarn, if desired. In this case, the cost of the pattern book plus additional shipping would need to be taken into account.

Oooh! Fancy French ribbon!
This is a deep khaki.

I paid 60 euros for this yarn and that's what I'm offering it for. Total cost is only 60 euros + shipping. Priority shipping + packaging is approximately 20 euros to America and 13 euros within Europe. Surface shipping is 13 euros to America and 9 euros within Europe. Shipping costs are approximate and subject to change. You also have the option of my sending it registered for an additional cost, which I highly recommend (and will require if I've never shipped to you before) as yarn losses are NOT reimbursed or replaced, and funds are not refunded in any event. If sent registered the priority shipping option must be taken.
