Notes

This time I really wanted to do the original pattern! But halfway through I had to face reality and admit I wouldn’t have enough yarn to finish. So I decided to improvise a round yoke with colourwork instead, knitting back and forth obviously because that’s how I had started the cardigan rolling_on_the_floor_laughing

I’ve had the Whales pattern in my faves forever but it’s not available anymore. So I recreated a chart of the colourwork from some of the photos and adapted a bit to fit with my requirements. Also had to readjust multiple times throughout to account for my remaining yarn amounts sweat_smile Also added some short rows in the upper back after the colourwork for shaping.
