Notes

Very cute cardigan and very fun to make. I loved making the edging, and the pocket and bobbles were also fun. Bobbles are just tiny and make up into a very nice and neat little wildflower.

For the pocket, I sewed the pocket lining to the sweater, placing stitches along the outside of the knitted “v” edge, so I did not follow along the edge of the lining. I think this makes for a neater look on the front and avoids that stitch shadow.

Note on sleeves, made long sleeves instead of 3/4 length. CO 82, end up with 50 stitches. Increase every 1.5 inches to 68.

This is the last of the Rowan 4-Ply in my stash, boo hoo.
