Finally found my finishing mojo and now my Livingstone Cardigan is done! And found some yummy toggle buttons.
On Ravelry: Dr. Livingstone
Pattern: Livingstone Cardigan by Amy Miller from Interweave Knits, Winter 2011
Yarn: 765 yards (700 m) of Novita Huopanen Lampola in colorway “Liinu” (026)
Needles: 6.5 and 7.0 mm
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.
