Gnarled Oak Cardigan

Pattern: Gnarled Oak Cardigan by Alana Dakos
Yarn: Baruffa 7 Settembre dyed by me
Needles: US 2.5 and 3
Notes: I didn't think I would have enough yarn to make full-length sleeves. I knit the body to the armholes then provisionally cast on the full circumference for the sleeves and knit about an inch, joined the sleeves to the body and completed the yoke. I picked up and knit the buttonbands then went back and knit the sleeves down. I ran out of yarn just past the elbows so that's that. The whole time I knit this I was worried it would be a little snug but it ended up being a little baggier around the waist than I had hoped.
Sorry for grimacing so much in the photos. It was a very wet and blustery day!
