Notes

The basic bones of this sweater are the Tea Leaves Cardigan, but I’ve changed the design of the yoke, the cuffs, and the hem. I’ve replaced the yoke ruching, and the cuff/hem garter stitch with ribbing.

Details below.

2013-08-23: Finished the yoke, ready to separate for sleeves, but taking a break to finish my in-progress blanket.

2013-09-04: Blanket finished, now back to the sweater!

2013-09-13: Body finished, starting sleeves tomorrow.

2013-09-17: Three days to make the sleeves? I am totally on a roll with this pattern.

2013-09-18: Button band done! Fastest. Sweater. Knitting. Ever. 18 days total - that’s a record for me.
