A gorgeous cardigan, very cleverly constructed with short rows, and a beautiful and easy “fake” braid stitch which kept me interested throughout the pattern.

I had a little trouble with the short row explanation in section C (for a tutorial on short rows and twisted/wrapped stitch see:
http://www.purlbee.com/knitting-tutorials-advanced-te/200... ).
Basically, you’re going to knit increasingly shorter rows at the back, and the “first turn” and “previous turn” in the explanation refer to the turn on that side of your knitting(right or left of back) on the row directly above - and not to the (very) first turn or the turn just previously knitted, as I understood the wording to mean.
So, for instance, the “first turn” in step D, isn’t the first turn (step A), but the turn in step B (the second turn made, but the first turn on the same side as step D).

PS for some reason, I’m unable to upload more photos - if you’d like to see more of this cardigan, check out my post on the blog!
