NOTES
Ceridwen was origianlly published in Pom Pom Quarterly’s Issue 26: Autumn 2018.

This sweater is worked flat and in pieces before seaming them together. The neckband is picked up last and folded over for a smooth finish. If working with Illimani’s Amelie, be careful not to accidentally push the needle directly through the yarn. If too forceful, this can break the silk core of the yarn.
