Although this design is called “Favourite Cardigan”, and it’s not technically my fav, I’m quite pleased with how this little number turned out.
I adore top down raglan sleeve knits!
I didn’t end up with the intended 3/4 length sleeves, even though I followed the pattern. I had a brain freeze and forgot to even check and see if I liked the length before I did the ribbing and bind off. Even so, I wasn’t displeased enough to change that!
I found some very cheap but very appropriate buttons at the local fabric store, and reinforced the buttonhole band with ribbon.
Pattern: Favourite Cardigan, out of “Custom Knits” by Wendy Bernard
Yarn: Cascade 220 Heathers, colour #2429
Needles: US 8 / 5.0 mm
Modifications: Made it full length as opposed to being cropped
Were I to make it again: The design is supposed to end up off the shoulders, but in no way does this happen if the pattern is followed as written. Next time I would cast on more stitches and start the body sooner.
