Cast this on on Christmas Eve 2018. Struggling a bit with the best way to do the colourwork so it’s been resting for a few weeks. Keen to get back to it.
1st May 2019
This is now a finished object and I love the end result. I made some changes to the design to suit my own preferences and shape, but I think it is well-written as it stands if you are a fan of garments with wider necklines and/or your shoulders are a lot wider than mine (not hard).
I didn’t do the full number of increases at the start of the colourwork section and I carried on the raglan decreases until the neckline was nice and close to my neck. I also crocheted the button/buttonhole/neck bands rather than knitting them because I like how that works. I almost doubled the number of buttons so I can wear it as a sweater as well as a cardigan.
