Notes

swatching with Plotulopi. I have 4 colors, but not much contrast. 2 blues, gray, white.

December 21, 2017

I decided to only use one-color motifs, and I think it looks OK (on the sleeves anyway). I am not sure about the yoke, but I can swatch again for the colors when I get there. Off to knit long rows on the body without colorwork…

January 6, 2018

Finished the sleeves and the body. Now to join everything together for the yoke, and to my horror I only now notice that I did not cast on enough stitches for the body. I am 10 stitches short. I already felt like this was coming out small…
What to do now?

I solved the 10 stitches short by slipping only 11 stitches for the underarm instead of 14. So at each underarm I have slipped 5 stitches less then as in the pattern. I’ll have to solve this when grafting the underarm, but I think that will be possible.
I used 2 Grays and 2 blues, so my sweater looks quite different from the original. Very happy with the outcome. Because I don’t close my cardigans anyway, I decided to do 3 buttonholes on the top of the cardigan only. Now to find just the right buttons.

Added: I used the one-row-buttonhole as described on Ysolda Teague’s blog. I really like this one, because it’s firm and strong. I was a bit worried with the yarn being fragile.
