Intswemodo #8 in 2013

I started this a while ago and now I have no idea what size I was thinking about, since the gauge is so way off (15 sts per 10cm). Will have to wing it :)
Finished sleeves by 44 sts.

-one thing I should have thought of was that the back turned out very very wide since my gauge was off. Getting the sleeves right isn’t all that matters ;)
But making this little fold was a good rescue, I don’t think anyone will think it’s a mistake!

I didn’t love knitting with this cotton and linen blend, it’s rough and structured and a lot of black dust was on my clothes, furniture and under my fingernails.
But after wash- love! It doesn’t bleed at all and I really love the linen look and feel.
The design goes very well with a yarn this heavy and drapey.
I think this cardigan will get a lot of summer wear :)
