My new cardigan for this autumn!
Thank you L san for the pattern and your kindness.


Gauge: 21 sts x29 rows on Jp# 5 (3.6mm).

+Didn’t use a cable needle.
+Sleeve: More lace repeats at the cuff. Work Rows 1-16 twice instead of once.
+Body: Start with Cable Co. After finishing all, there is still enough yarn left for hem. Pick up and Knit from the CO and knit 8 rows to add a folded hem.
+Neckline: Add more rows. After following the direction, did W&T twice (4 rnds).
+Bands and Collar: Did pick up & knit from RS, instead of just pick up.

27/03-Starting from the body, I have come to 12 cm from CO. mmm… I am seriously worried about yarn shortage as well as the size which looks big for me.
28/03-Decided starting over
-Smallest Size, 33
-Top-down? no! i need relax.
-Change the hem style. I-cord or the same as Sleeve cuff.
