Very nice and well understandable pattern. As always, thank you Heidi! But read the pattern very carefully, every stich counts. The tables make it easier to follow the instructions and are a very good control if you`re making mistakes.

The yarn is a very good choice for this project, its almost like silk between my fingers.
This is my favorite project at the moment.

Tuesday, 10th May 11:
Today ‘re the 73 yoke rows ready.
Hurray. Its really quick.
Sunday, 15th May 11:
First sleeve ready knitted and sewn.
Sunday, 22nd May 11:
Second sleeve ready.

Made a big mistake after the armpart in the short row section. I can only say - r e a d carefully!

Had to unravel up to the arms again and re-knit all of it. The short row section is almost done. At this point I will knit 40 additional rows, which should give 10cm more length. I expect to have a 69cm long cardigan.

The cardi turned into a very very endless knitting. Its a real challenge to knit any further.

July 2012:
Again, a try to finish this endless knitting project. This time with help of the Ravellenic Games 2012.
Left the 40 rows of plain kniiting behind me like nothing. Ok this is promising. Now the last 32 rows of pattern, plus neckline.

Finished - fitting nicely! Hurray!

The colour is really hard to catch, its a teal/apple green mixture. All pics look as if I knitted reverse stockinette - I didn’t. Its the effect of the shiny yarn.
