Its taken a while but this week I finished my Ursula cardigan from Colours of Shetland by Kate Davis. I am reasonably pleased with it but there are a few details I am less happy with.
I like the colours that I chose and the fair isle pattern. I am less keen on the bulk created by knitting in the round with steeks at the front opening, the neckline and the armholes.
After much knitting and re-knitting I replaced the ribbed button band with a "steek sandwich" which is quite bulky but gives a neat finish.
It is the bulk of steeked fabric around the armholes that bothers me but perhaps with wearing this will felt down and become less of a problem. My ravelry notes are here.
