Notes

Interesting construction! Very well written and it’s lot of fun to knit:-)

It’s the first time I knit with Madelinetosh. I have to say it’s pretty fine to work with such smooth and lovley yarn :-)

Ok, the upper back and the upper fronts are done! This cardi is really an enjoyable knit with a very clever construction and a beautiful cablepattern:)

Puh, back and front and the borders are done!
My mods:

  • did one less increase for the waist shaping (five times instead of 6 times) for a better fit
  • decrease 6 stitches for the eylet and rib border
  • knit 4 rowes more on the eylet and rib border
  • for the neckband I knit a vikkel braid instead of the braid in the pattern, it works better for me.
  • add one more buttonhole

First sleeve is picked up and now it’s going on:)
