Antler Cardigan

Project Description

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. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Check gauge and check and recheck your math!
