After knitting a lot of Top-Down, NON Raglan sweaters where you have to pick up stitches and put them on hold and such, I wanted to have something comfortable, brainless, knitting in the round.

And after a lot of sweater knitting, I now wanted a cardigan. So I did some pattern research and decided I finally want my own Comodo!

Currently, I plan to NOT make it so drapey in front. And I might also increase some more stitches in front to make the fronts a little closer together.

Cast on and after app. 4 increases, I took the time to REALLY look at the photo tutorial for the M1r and M1l increases used…oergs

So now there are some holes where they are not supposed to be… but I will leave it like that probably, the cast-on tail is long enough to sew them up…

August 1, 2019

Finished the 7th eylet rows.
Love the YO edging!

August 3, 2019

Separated sleeves shortly after 10th back increase,
61 stitches for each front
80 stitches for each sleeve
CO 6 stitches under each sleeve

August 4, 2019

Continued the front increases only in rows with back increases, in all other rows I do a k2tg at the beginning and a ssk at the end of the row.

Finished the second ball of yarn shortly after the 14th back increase.

August 6, 2019

Finished 17 back increase. Decided to only do the front increases every 16th row after row 15 of back increases.

August 11, 2019

Finished second 50 g ball shortly before the 20th back increase, are currently at my 24th back increase.

August 15, 2019

Finished body with 2.5 mm needles
Picked up 89 stitches for sleeves.
Plan to decrease 2 stitches every 8 rows, similair to this red Vitamin D »

August 16, 2019

Finished 5 TH ball oft yarn halfway into the sleeve

August 18, 2019

Finished first sleeve. Meanwhile started my second Comodo from scrap yarn, but promised myself that I will finish this first one by the end of this week so I wear it in my hiking vacation… If the weather forecast is right, it might be too warm to wear it, but anyway…

August 21, 2019

Finished knitting, wove in ends, washed and let dry flat.
I did not try it on so far, but it seems it gained quite some length in the wash, so I assume it will be app. 65 cm long noch instead of 60 cm before washing -we will see.

Ended up using a tiny bit of the 7th ball of yarn - I would guess about 10 g of it. I could have gone away with 300 g of fingering yarn if I made the sleeves not full length, but 7/8 or did the body a little shorter.

August 22, 2019

Tried it on and really love it!
Did 26 back increases in total
Would probably only do 20 to 23 next time.
Sleeves are on the tight side so will separate after 11 yos next time.
