The pattern is dead easy to knit- you just have to trust the instructions. Its also (suprisingly) not a boring knit. By the time I had 400 sts on my needles I was so busy counting yarn overs that I didnt really notice.
Did I mention there are only two seams to sew up?
The fit is really, really good (after blocking). I also think it was a fairly quick knit for 4ply, two months?
I love the vintage glass buttons that I found in an Op-Shop for $2, they are an orange-red but go really well with the cardigan so who cares.
We ate fish and chips instead…
