What are you most proud of? Figuring out the right number of ribs and how to make them work for both the raglan shaping and the waist cables took a surprising amount of time and effort. In the end, though, I figured it out and this is actually quite an easy knit.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The cables are supposed to sit right at the natural waist. Take your blocked gauge into consideration when deciding exactly where to place them. Also, there's a lot of stretch in this cardigan so don't make it too big!

Wonderful! I really like how the waist shaping is accentuated by the cables. Thank you!

The wide horizontal line of the collar is perfect for balancing a pear shape. This is a very pretty pattern and I love the waist cables, too.
