I finished my blush cardigan last week. I was pleasantly surprised at how well it fit me AND that I had enough yarn to complete the project. So nice when the Knitting Gods bless me with success. It's too hot to wear this sweater but I have something exciting to wear when the weather cools off.
I did not enjoy knitting with the cotton, my hands tire quickly since the yarn has no spring. I truly believe I knit at a slower rate as well.
I loved the top down construction and the over all fit. However I do NOT like how far spaced the button holes are. (they create a gap....). The button holes are created while knitting the body of the sweater at the same time. I would have preferred a picked up button band so I could place the button holes exactly 2.5 inches apart.
Since this cardigan is 100% cotton I steamed blocked the edges to get them to lay flat and they could be a lot flatter for my taste. I resisted the urge to use spray starch but I truly wanted to spritz the edges. Again, this is the behavior of cotton.
