Notes

This cardigan was biggest reason why I wanted this book. I had to knit it.

June 14th: Started to knit first sleeve.
June 17th: Finished first sleeve and started second.
June 20th: Second sleeve is ready.
June 21st: Started back.
June 25th: Finished back and started left front.
June 28th: Finished left front and started right.
June 29th: I blocked back and left front.
June 30th: I blocked sleeves.
July 1st: Finished right front.
July 4th: Cardigan is ready. It is so lovely.

This cardigan is very beautiful. After my modifications I like that it is almost perfect. I was little affraid that lace pattern would be hard, but after all it was quite easy to memorize. And it is so good looking. Biggest problem was to do right modifications. I love this cardigan!
I used 417 g yarn to this.

Modifcations:

I knitted ½ chart more than in the pattern before armholes.
I continued to knit after chart when I started arm holes in back and front.
I made deeper o-neck starting decreasing ½ chart before that in pattern.
I knitted I-cord edge to the neck.
