Notes

Hmm…I don’t know how I feel about the finished cardigan. The arm length is a bit long (thankfully I didn’t not follow all the instructions and shortened my arm length but it still turned out too long) and I don’t like the drape of the sweater around my butt. It just hangs a bit oddly so I am a little disappointed but this one is complete and I’ll move on to the next one.

Okay, my knitting buddy Lavon convinced me the sweater isn’t lost and I’ve taken out the bindoff and am going to bindoff again 1. with a size up in needles 2. at the hips and bottom I will use a stretchier bindoff technique to help the sweater lay better.

UPDATED: I did a stretchy bindoff to salvage this and that has helped the shape. Still not exactly where I wanted it to be but definitely wearable. Also snuggly.
