Notes

I’m aiming to use up some of my Jamieson and Smith stash. Probably using 14 colours. I’m using the chart from the Lucy pattern, but working to my own cardigan template.
Starting with the sleeves for about 14 cm then I’ll be working the sleeves and the body simultaneously to keep an eye on yarn usage.

Worried about yarn consumption brought in five more colours.

19 colours used in total. I like the finished look. A very unique cardigan. A great stashbuster.
