This what has been accomplished thus far.
Mo gave me a garbage bag full of Evergreen Aran yarn after her destashing - probably about 80 50g balls altogether. The label says 95% wool and 5% 'other fibres'. However on Ravelry it says it contains cashmere, wool and cotton. There were about 36 50g balls of the pink yarn - more than enough to knit a sweater. I prefer a raglan sleeve and found the Cabled Cardigan on Ravely. Fortunately, I already owned the magazine so I was able to commence swatching right away. I had to do a little math to figure out what size I should knit. Instinct tells me to knit the XL size but my gauge was looser so I went down a size. I think it's really sized to be used as a jacket and I will really just use it as a sweater over a long sleeved tee shirt in the winter. There should be about 3" of positive ease completely unstretched. I also want to modify the neckline and make a v-neck like the Must Have Cardigan I knit a couple of years ago.
I will also make it shorter than the pattern calls for so the bottom is at the hip rather than below. I'm also not doing pockets.
