Notes

I love this sweater! Though I was a little concerned it would fit too small, after blocking it’s just perfect.

My ribbing at the beginning of the cardigan is too short (I did half the rows called for as I read the pattern wrong). I was thinking about shortening/lengthening the cardi to fix it but decided that would be crazy. If I had I would have followed the instructions in this video:

For button holes I used the yo k2tog method.

Seaming Sleeves:

Thanks to hswestbrook for suggesting this video on the mattress stitch and seaming sleeves. Very helpful!

Yarn for this sweater was harvested from a Crossroads purchase. It’s super slubby, which was a concern at first, but turned out totally fine! Pics of the original sweater at the bottom and here.
