I finally finished my first cardigan. Unfortunately, it’s an inch or so too small around the chest. I’m sure it had nothing to do with the fact that I totally altered the pattern. I found a pattern for a “Men’s Irish Cardigan” on the internet, but didn’t really like the cable pattern, so I decided to pull a left-twist section out of another sweater and just repeat it throughout the sweater instead. Hey, the gauge swatch came out the same, so I figured I was good to go. Well, I was half way through the back before I noticed that I was reading the pattern wrong.
