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.
