Notes

Needles: 3.25mm for gauge, 3.00mm for below-gauge.

Fit: Modelled by Kate with zero ease. Knit actual bust measurement for a close fit, but also suits working with ease if you wish to create a cardigan that will close all the way down. I’m knitting for a close fit, with the intention of wearing it open or pinned under bust/at waist and open at hips.

15 Dec - 17 Dec: swatching (twice).
18 Dec - cast on for size 2 = 218 stitches. I’ve added 2 selvedge stitches (one stitch per side), so 220 stitches cast on.
19 Dec - ribbing
20 Dec - ribbing
21 Dec - set up markers and pockets, worked pocket linings.

Attempting the sleeves two at a time - a new technique for me.

So, the sleeves took a very long time due to my aversion to sleeve knitting. Finished them in late March, and then finished the whole cardigan in a couple of weeks!
