Pattern : Em Dash by Lisa Chemery
Yarn : YOTH YARN
5 skeins of Thyme, 2 skeins of Cacao
Size : XL
Notes for pattern modification :
Since I was afraid of running out of yarn, I did the sleeves and neck border before the rest of the body.
Total body lengh from armhole, 51 cm, as I wanted to wear my cardigan at full lengh for California winter. 40 cm would have been to short for me. Chest circumference fits well for my XL size.
Ran out of yarn so adapted with stripes 9 cm
after body and sleeves separation on both body and sleeves.
13 buttons total.
Pockets are total of 14 cm, fit my hand well that way. Use a white thread to guide my sewing sides of pockets for a better clean finishing.
It is my way to sew straight. Bottom of pocket is knitted together with last row before border for a clean finish and
also because I hate sewing yarn.
Made ribbing in contrasting color, including pocket.
Adjusted sleeves with additional 4 sts pick up at under arm and then decrease every 8 rounds,
with final 56 sts at ribbing. Total sleeve lengh 40 cm, full lengh sleeve. 45.5 cm would have been too long.
