I gave Lauralee her new cropped cardigan! I was soooooo happy....it fits her to perfection! Just the way it's supposed to. About 0 positive ease. She'll wear it this summer with her little sundresses for special events we attend as families with our church.
And for church on Sunday. Everything is air-conditioned, and some sort of shawl or cardigan is necessary if you dress for summer, like sundresses, sleeveless tops, etc.
I blocked the body first (full soak method)...then added the ribbing...then blocked the ribbing (spritz method). This is how I shaped the back of the neck because I didn't want it to go wonky or creased. This method works really well.
This is the body, before blocking...a crumpled mess!
My Ravelry notes. The pattern for it is here.
