Dr. Livingstone

Finally found my finishing mojo and now my Livingstone Cardigan is done! And found some yummy toggle buttons.


  • Worked all pieces seamlessly, joined the sleeves to body for the raglan decreases.

  • Added a sort of waist-shaping by working on smaller needles for about 5 cm / 2 in around the waist.

  • Picked up stitches for the front bands rather than sewing it on later. Added an extra (7th) wrapped stitch in the collar. Worked the front bands for 4 in (10 cm).

Feeling really great about this cardi but if I was to make it again, I would probably make the body a bit longer.
