A sweet cardigan and fairly easy instructions for this pattern. I had to take care when knitting the pockets.
It will need careful blocking because of the loops at the bottom.

Day 6- first sleeve done, one to go! Just read the making up instructions and each piece to be blocked before joining together. Can that be right?

I wet blocked the pieces separately then joined.
I decided to Join the shoulders with Kitchener stitch and to leave the back of the neck stitches live so that when I picked up the neckband I could just use the live stitches.

The sleeves are slightly awkward to fit in but that was the only problem I had. It is now washed and reblocked although I may have to give the edging a bit of a steam when they are dry. They were rolling again when I was stitching together.

Finally finished and I am really pleased with the result. Only slight reservation is that I used an acrylic/polyamide blend I had in my stash and it feels slightly more harsh than the yarns I tend to use. However, I had it in my stash and I think it was cheap (cost effective)
