Always use a needle size that will result in the correct gauge after blocking.

Notions: 8 stitch markers, cable needle, stitch holders or scrap yarn, blocking pins (optional, but useful to block out excess curl along bottom edge and neck of garment)

Notes: Soirée is worked in the round, from the bottom cast-on edge to the underarms, then the front and back are knit flat separately from underarms to shoulders. Shoulder seams are grafted before picking up stitches around armholes and knitting the sleeves down to the cuffs. Sweater edges are intended to curl slightly, but are finished with a subtle cable to control the amount of curl. Hold one strand of yarn A and B together throughout.
