Princess Cardigan

Project Description

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Princess Cardigan from "Coronation Knits" by Susan Crawford Link to website or photo www.amazon.com/Coronation-Knitted-Celebration-Diamond-Jubilee/dp/0957228600/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1362889551&sr=8-1&keywords=coronations+knits What are you most proud of? The pattern called for fingering yarn, and mine was actually sports weight, so I had to go with measurements, and the gauge of the swatch, rather than by row and stitch count on the pattern. I also wanted buttons and had to figure out (with some help ) how to add the button hole. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Always make a swatch! And read the instructions CAREFULLY! They're well written, but Susan is British, and this pattern was a reminder that although we may use the same words, we often use them differently!
