What materials did you use? The Antler Cardigan pattern by tincanknits and Knit Picks Brava Worsted yarn in the red colorway

What are you most proud of? The fit of the sweater. I cast on 147 stitches to allow for some negative ease for my hips and added 7 rows of decreasing every 6 rows from hip to waist and 9 rows of increasing every 5 rows or so from waist to armholes. I knit the buttonband for the size up from mine, just to make sure that the sweater did not end up too snug. I shortened the sweater so that it is about 21 inches long along the front to even out my bottom-heavy shape.
