Notes

This pattern is amazing. I don’t remember when I knitted such a well calculated pattern before. It uses a bunch of different techniques - cables, fancy ribbing, intarsia, plain stockinette - yet, instead of changing needles you just have to increase or decrease the number of stitches. And it works like clockwork. I am telling you, AMAZING!
The yarn though is a totally different matter… But all is well that ends well. And I absolutely love the finished cardigan.
