Notes

No more set-in sleeves, seamless or seamed!

Oh, and I made it too short. Sigh. Instead of giving it to someone, I decide to lengthen it. As you know, you cannot work downward on a piece worked upward, because the pattern will be off half a stitch.

So I snipped a row midway between cable crossings, raveled the round, added some length to the bottom, then grafted the whole thing back together. There are so many ends woven in because the grafting yarn got ratty looking so quickly, so lots of fresh lengths.

Note to self: Never again.
