Notes

3mm needles gave correct tension

I decided to make a size up from what I would usually, because the finished measurements were so small. I know it’s meant to be negative ease, but I thought it looked too small even for the model in the photo.

The cashmere makes a fabulous knitted fabric - lots of structure and firmness, giving a tailored look to the garment - it’s more like a jacket than a cardigan.
