For the raglan increases I’ve used M1R (make 1 right) and M1L (make 1 left). This creates a nice pair of increases that mirror one another. I have a little way of remembering how to do each…

M1R: lift the bar between the stitch you’ve just knit and the next stitch, from back to front (I’m left handed and so M1”Right“ must be back-to-front) then knit into the back leg so it twists;

M1L: lift the bar between the stitch you’ve just knit and the next stitch from front to back (you guessed it, left-handers aren’t back to front…) and then knit into the front leg so it twists.

It might not work for you …. unless you’re left handed too ;)

Sleeves. Oh dear. What a performance. Abandoned part way through and knit the front bands. Blogged here.

Buttonholes. I’ve only done a single yo because I didn’t want them too big. I’d rather little buttons if there are going to be so many (10). So - instead of k2tog, yo twice and k2tog - I k2tog, yo, k2.

Finished! Photos coming soon.
I love my little grey pearly-headed buttons.

My cardigan was part of Outfit 3 from my Handmade Wardrobe Project - I’ve blogged about it here.

Want to join the Truly Grace knit along? It’s running now, until mid-April - details here on my blog.
