I've done bottom up and they are fine, but I like being able to try it on.

After reading the last few posts, it really makes me wonder if I want to tax my brain with this top-down cardi.

It should work out fine. I was just offering a different take on the stitch to row gauge ratio.

It really is fun to do. There's something very pleasing about the line of increases at the sleeves. It's a change from the usual bottom-up directions and it's not difficult, just different.
