I have been on a Kate Davies knitting kick, first the Scatness tam and now a Blaithin cardigan. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to knit it. Full of 'new to me' techniques, crochet steeking, i-cord bind off, pockets it was a satisfying knit all the way through.
Knit bottom and and in the round, after I cut the steek, my husband said he was impressed that I did not have a mess of yarn and frayed edges. I had a few moments of some of the steek letting go, but with some delicate handling all went well and the button band made such a nice finish to the cardigan.
