Notes

I modified the sleeves so that they were full length and close fitting. Added some embroidery below the neckline. Nice casual cardigan but I’m a bit concerned the button bands are already starting to look saggy.
Solved the saggy button bands problem by crocheting a line of slip stitches along the inside edge of each band. This gives a much firmer edging - and a happier me.
