Notes

I wanted a short-sleeve cardigan for summer time.
At the same time, I was interested in the construction of this pattern, which starts with a sleeve edge and works sideway upto the center of the back edge and sews R&L sides together in the center.
The pattern calls for DK yarn, but all the needles I used were the same ones as the pattern calls for, intending the cardi to be light and swingy.
Happy now!

袖から編み始め背中で合わせる構造をやってみたかったので、決めました。夏用カーディも欲しかったので^^
糸量もぎりぎりだったこともあり、指定より細い糸だけど、針のサイズはそのままにして、軽い一枚になるようにと、糸も足りますようにと。軽く仕上がり、ピンポン玉大の糸も残り良かった。
実はちょっとしっくりこず、解くつもりでいったんは仕上げてましたが、水ブロッキング後は糸もパターンに馴染んで、よい感じの仕上がりになりました。これまた良かった!
