Notes

A nice little spring cardigan.

My thoughts:

  • This is tight in the shoulders for me. I wish the sleeve cap were a bit deeper.
  • This pattern uses way way less yarn than the pattern calls for - I make a 32” with under 800 yards, including a generous swatch.
  • I would say this pattern is not for beginners - there is a fair amount of knowledge assumed that someone making their first sweater might not know. The shoulders in particular were rough - I had 12 copies of the lace repeat all with different stitch counts and stitches missing in different places which meant that at every one I had to evaluate how to execute the lace pattern and end up with the correct number of stitches.
