Notes

I’m very happy this cardigan - the fit is perfect and I can forsee that it will get much use.

The pattern itself is well written and a fun knit.
I omitted the pocket and knit the sleeves about 3/4” longer than specified as I like for my sleeves to extend about 1” beyond my wrist.

As an aside I really aprecciate how the DROPS ALPACA softened the overall feel of the
cardigan. I can’t often wear Cascade 220 next to my skin but paired with the DROPS ALPACA it doesn’t seem to irritate my skin at all!
Thank you Archiana, Gera and DariasTulip for the inspiration!

note to self: The next time that I knit this I would add a 5th button (or button to the base of the cardigan) and would extend the sleeves about another 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch
