5mm needle to meet gauge.
My provisional cast-on method.

Buttons by Robin on etsy.

170g/357 yds Floral for Body.
51g/107 yds Red for Body(bands and bottom edge).
61g/128yds Floral for both sleeves.
53g/111yds Floral for hood.

Skirt increases - 3 times total into Purl sections.
Omitted pockets so as not to hide my extra cables.
Hood 6st cable inline with sleeve cables.

Put safety pins on button band as I worked it to mark button position.

This is an early test - the released pattern will have the following differences.
New pattern the cables are started 5 rows earlier.
I have 6 cables on back and 3 cables on each front, and a band of rib under the arms - new pattern has 7 cables on back.

Brown/camel Lavanda here.

Finish date is so long because I was waiting for buttons.
