What advice would you give someone starting this project? It is worth spending the time knitting the swatches and getting the gauge right. With the suggested needle size I was too loose and with one size down I was too tight. Following advice from Carol I used the smaller needles but added an extra 6 stitches (2 at either side seam and one to each front edge) and increased the buttonband from 1 inch to 1.5 inches. The final size is perfect. I cannot emphasise how useful this class has been. I have learnt so many new techniques - the alternate cable cast on, the grafted bind off (which I just loved), buttonholes and bobbles. Don't be put off by how complicated the pattern looks. Once you get started it's actually pretty straightforward and the videos are absolutely fantastic. I so enjoyed knitting this cardigan that I'm a little sad I'm finished! I've certainly got the cables bug - I'm quite keen to try Carol's Killorglin zip up cardigan from Contemporary Irish Knits now. (Although the thought of zips slightly freaks me out - wouldn't that be an excellent class for Craftsy to do!)
