Notes

This pattern is clear, well written, and easy to make. It is a shame I cannot wear such long, oversized cardigans - this one is incredibly comfy and light.
And the yarn… Instead of Rowan Fine Lace I used my dream yarn - Swans Island from the Natural Colors collection with subtle color variations and extreme softness. Kidsilk Haze was substituted by Cascade Kid Seta (sadly discontinued).
One modification - instead of making sleeves separately and sewing them later to the body, I picked sleeve stitches along the back and front - 95 sts altogether, 120 rows to the ribbing with 20 decreases in every 6th row.
Otherwise - no changes. Great pattern for TV watching or talking to friends - just lots of stockinette.
More - on my blog.
