This cardigan is working up much faster than I anticipated!
All of this past week, what got me through the day was knowing I was coming home to this project. Even after a long day of work, I somehow still had the brain capacity to decipher chart instructions.
I just got through the largest and what appears to be the most difficult part of the pattern, the back. Now I can see the cardigan coming together! I have just casted on the first sleeve, feeling much more confident about what I am doing.
The design on the back of this pattern is just dreamy. Without planning it, my last row happened to fall on the point of the diamond, which absolutely thrills my OCD mind. I was also a little bit concerned about the stiffness of the swatch because of my gauge, but now that the piece is so large, it’s actually turned out to hold its shape with just enough squishiness.
Next up, the sleeves and collar!
