Pattern: Raglan Cardigan in Bucilla Raglans (*)

Yarn: Cascade 220 Heathers (the tealy blue one with
purple flecks)

Needles: US 8

Notes/Thoughts/Etcetera: I kind of worked from the pattern, in theory. * It’s been heavily modified for my needs. The original pattern (retro!) had the smallest size for a size 8, my child is, at best, a 4T. I changed the needle size, yarn weight, changed all the numbers. Mostly I used the pattern as a guide and worked with my gauge and my kid’s measurements to produce the sweater I wanted (or, he wanted, rather). It was a fun exercise. There were facings, and I have never really done those with knitwear before. So Fun.
