Notes

After washing my swatch I ended up with 16st/4”, but I like the fabric at this gauge, so I calculated which smaller size I’d need to follow the numbers for in order to get a me-sized cardigan.

Other modifications were making the lace rib pattern on the front band and sleeves a little narrower, and doing my own A-line shaping to weld together the smaller size top and larger size bottom.

Great pattern, love the yarn, I’ve worn this sweater regularly for months now and NO PILLING! I think it has grown a little - pretty sure I haven’t shrunk ;) - but very wearable as a cosy oversized piece.


This project is shown in episodes 8-14 of my video podcast Gentle Ribbing!
