Beautiful pattern – took longer than I thought it would, given the bulky yarn and the size of the needles. After it was done, I tossed it damp into the dryer for carefully supervised ten-minute time blocks – I find that it tightens up the yarn and the stitching a little and gives the cardigan more shape. Plus, it was too big – even though it’s supposed to be oversized – and I wanted a little shrinkage. I’m thinking it could go in the dryer one more time, but I wanted to wear it a few times first, to see how I liked the fit.
