Notes

Soooooo.

I still don’t know if I’am happy with this : the shape is great, the yarn too, the jacquard also… But the diminutions on the gray part are really uggly, damned.

I used 2.25mm needles for the ribs because I didn’t have 2.75, and well, it’s still okay.

I loved the paper Dolls pattern shape but not the chart, and the Cityscape chart but not the cardigan shape…
But I wasn’t going to buy a 7$ cardigan pattern just for the chart so I decided to draw my own using the same idea.

You can find a better view of the chart this way:

Oh, by the way, my mother is learning to work with mud so she made me this knitting bowl for christmas, it was my firts project using it.

If I knit this again, I’ll do it top-down and change the diminutions instructions. Yet this was a lovely project.
