Cardigan Grace by Astrid Tueting
Needles & yarn
US 5 - 3.75 mm
Rowan Alpaca Classic
7.1 skeins = 930.1 yards (850.5 meters), 177 grams
Uncommon Threads Yarn in Los Altos, California

Very fun lace section and easy pattern to follow. The i-cord along the edges and hem took a long time but was worth it and I love the way the buttonholes turned out. I did not crochet an edging to use for picking up stitches for the icord. Instead, I picked them up in the more traditional way.

Did not add extra stitches onto sleeves and body after sleeve separation. Actual sweater bust measurement is 34.5”.

The yarn surprised me. At first I thought it was itchy but after a wet-block, it blocked out perfectly to measurements and became softer. I am able to wear it next to my skin, so if I said anything bad about this yarn before, I take it back!
