Even if it has a bad rep, Red Heart = Machine Washable

Take that, fiber snobs! Tongue

There are plenty of superwash wools avaliable at LYSs... and let's not be rude by calling names, shall we?

Thanks!  Yes, I do have modification notes on my blog, but I don't want to link to it for fear of getting this message put in Limbo by the Craftster police!  Yikes!  So here is the link to my mods on craftster https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=148260.msg1870179#msg1870179 a few pages back on this knitalong, and all of the other information that I put in my blog posting, besides those details, are at the top of this page here posted with my FO picture.  Thank you for all of the compliments, everyone, you totally made my day, wow!

Thanks!  I'm very happy with it, and I think I've come a long way since my totally disastrous first sweater (Big Sack Sweater from SNB- the name alone should have told me not to knit this sweater!) and I'm happy that I can actually WEAR this one! Smiley

Yay, finished!  Grin

I used 6.5 skeins of Artyarns Supermerino in color 230.  I made the 32-35" bust size, even though I am a 36" bust, because I wanted negative ease.  I knit it pretty long because I knew that when I buttoned it, it would sort of shorten up a bit.  I did a few extra increases at the hip to accommodate my bellay Smiley, and I knit 5/8 sleeves and did the mock cables at the cuffs.

aurelia> I am loving your cardi, the color is absolutely beautiful! Are you going to use buttons or a zipper? (I think I see button holes?)

Lots of buttons!  (Probably too many, but oh well!)

Thanks!  I just looked at the picture again and the cardigan looks way longer than it actually is- that must be because of the angle I took the picture at, I guess?

Here is my Wicked progress.  I am almost done with one sleeve (I'm doing 3/4 length sleeves).  I am making the 32-34" bust size and making it into a cardigan (obviously) and using Artyarns Supermerino.

I am knitting a cardigan Wicked and I am modelling mine after the Flintknits cardigan that is earlier on this thread.  For mine, I decided to do a 4-stitch seed stitch band on each side (i hate adding button bands later) and I added 2 stitches on each side since the cable panels down the front will take up a bit of space.  So that's the original amount of cast-on stitches plus 10sts.  I am knitting the 32-35" bust size and so I cast on 120sts.  I then knit the mock cable neckline as directed but I just didn't join it and I made sure to do the first and last 4 stitches in seed stitch for the button band.  When it came time to put the markers, I made sure that the back and sleeves had the appropriate amount (42 and 20 stitches each, respectively) and then the fronts had a few more stitches (due to the button band and the extra couple of stitches).  I kept 3 mock cable rows running down each side of the front at the point where the original pattern says to switch to stockinette.  That's pretty much it.  Once you have the beginning all mapped out, its downhill from there.  Just don't forget about buttonholes (I almost did!).
