FO: "Petronia" cardigan
Oy vey! I've so totally procrastinated finishing this lovely little cardigan! It's knit with dk weight yarn...Elsebeth Lavold's Silky Wool which I've had for aeons, and it is my favorite dk wool of all. A dk weight sweater is the most popular sweater of all. I read that. You'll grab for your dk sweater first of all! They are always just about right! Not too thin, not too heavy.

The pattern stitch was a PITA in the armhole shaping upper body. I would rate this cardigan 5 stars, but I wouldn't recommend the pattern to anyone except a very experienced sweater knitter. I barely muddled through it without mistakes. 'Choreographing' the pattern repeats was a nightmare for the Back because the repeats were impacted differently at each end of the row. Some repeats disappeared altogether, being gobbled up by decreases, some didn't.

So here she is:

I adore this hemline. The cuffs are the same. I think the designer really
worked out the numbers for it perfectly. A wonderful transition from rib to lace!
It totally satisfied the perfectionist in me. I hate awkward and crude transitions.

My Rav notes.
