Notes

It’s a perfect fit and I love it. If you are trying to build a timeless sweater wardrobe, or refresh an older one, then this is the pattern for you. A plain vanilla cardigan was missing from my sweater wardrobe.

You can tell that much care was taken with the writing of this pattern. It’s very easy to follow and will make a classic sweater using a few technique twists on the basics--sleeves use a modified contiguous set-in sleeve that makes a good fit and is easy to do. It is knit top down and there are faux seams up the sides and the back that you could of course eliminate if you chose to.

The button bands are simple and charming and while new to me, I’m sure I’ll use them again. I added one mod to the bands by adding two extra knit rows on either side of the buttonhole row=4 extra rows per band. Did the same for the button band.

I also brought in my neck in by decreasing 2 sts in each shoulder area of the neck trim--dec 4 sts per row X 3 rows = 12 sts dec total. This brought the neck in a bit as I like my necks a bit more fitted.
