Slim-fitting Cardigan Redoux

Originally uploaded by orangeeener
After discovering my mistake with the asterisk, in the "Slim-Fitting Cardigan" from Fun and Flirty Crochet by Katharine Lee, I redid the back and what a huge difference! You can see the wave pattern and I have the correct number of stitches.

I love working with Katia Swing. It's a microfiber and cotton cable and it crochets quite nicely. The color is vibrant too. Would like working with it again. It does get a little fuzzy when worked with. I hope it does not pill or stretch.

The Asterisk Bit Me!

Started the Slim-fitting Cardigan by Katharine Lee from
Fun and Flirty Crochet
only to discover that I had been following the instructions wrong. The asterisk meant that I was doing the wave pattern incorrectly because I was not repeating in the correct place. Nuts! I'll take a picture to show the difference. I realized I did not have enough stitches and I am 75% completed on the back. When I looked at the stitch diagram, I realized that I did it wrong.
