Sweet Pea Cardigan

The Sweet Pea cardigan was one of those impromptu projects. I picked up the magazine, fell in love with the pattern while still standing in my LYS and left with the yarn to make it (already moved from WIM to PIG). Of course having an almost 4 yo dd asking if her pretty flower sweater is done yet made this move immediately from PIG to WIP. The trip to NY saw a fair amount of progress on the sweater, and in spite of running out of yarn a few days ago, I have even more progress to report! The top picture is on the 24th, after assembling the sweater. The second picture is on the 25th after adding the neck edging, center front edgings and button hole loops. I guess I had actually just started the lacy botton edge as well.
After the trip to my LYS & Joann's I had the yarn to be able to complete the crocheting on the 26th (I took my kids to 2 playgrounds - they had fun and I was able to do some rare daytime crocheting). This last picture shows the finished sleeve & bottom lacey edging and also includes the flower buttons and the ribbon & thread to embroider the flowers.

Help, I've lost this pattern! What magazine was it in? Is it a Candi Jensen design? I've made one and want to do another, it is adorable.

Thanks!
