Finally! Stitched the button band on in between courses during my belated birthday dinner, attached the buttons, and IT IS FINISHED! Glittertind is an amazing pattern. Filcolana Cinnia may be the softest merino I have ever used. The whole project is just gorgeous.
I made a few amendments to the pattern, and didn’t use as much wool for the contrast colour section as the pattern suggested.
- Used 3.5 mm needles for chart 2 on the yoke. Otherwise the shoulders would have been too narrow.
- Did the ribbing and cast off on 3 mm needles, and only decreased to 76 sts for the final part. My cast off was a little tight and the pre-steeked sweater wouldn’t fit over lil’E’s head so I’m very glad I opted for the cardigan instead of the sweater.
