Notes

7-2-10 - finished. re-blocked and photographed. really really pleased with the end result. I made NO modifications and everything worked out perfectly. the finished sweater actually weighs in at 398 grams, but I have pieces and parts of three balls of yarn leftover - I wouldn’t want to try this with just 4 skeins.

6-26-10 - wet blocked after knitting the body. used 2 skeins plus a bit of the 3rd to finish it.

6-17-10 - really enjoying the knitting - great pattern and fun details.

6-8-10 - got 20 st/4 inches with size 7 needles (blocked the swatch and the gauge didn’t change); decided to make the smallest size (32-1/2”) so the cardigan will hang open at the front like the modeled photos.
