A knit-a-long with my sister TheDoctorsPlusOne! She wasn’t happy with what she was knitting so we spontaneously cast on Manus instead.
Working on this while we move house yet again…
Things I completely adore about this cardigan: tiny little buttons! I-cord buttonholes! Neat garter edgings! Lots of pleats! Snug cuffs that I can pull over my hands! All the i-cord ‘round the edges!
for once, I’ve shortened the body to 15” as I’m close on yardage and want to lengthen the sleeves
lengthened sleeves to 19.5”
omitted pockets- no particular reason, I just really like the way it looks without them
Tips/Notes for future reference
knit last round of cuff very loosely to make room for increases
bind off cuffs loosely!!
3 stitches between buttonholes
Buttons are square pearls from Marmee’s Heirlooms in Ohio.
