Back in July, I started this cardigan with some Evergreen Aran tweedy yarn that Mo gave me. I modified the Vogue pattern quite a lot. I made the ribbing on the bottom and cuffs about half the required length, I started each row with 1 stockinette stitch to make it easier to sew up later. I omitted the ribbed collar and made a v-neck instead. I did this by decreasing at the neckline at the same time I started decreasing at the underarm for the raglan sleeve. I made the sleeves shorter as I don't like sleeves below my wrists. I also mirrored the cables.
After I finished that, I reinforced the stitches along the back of the neck by crocheting inside the line between the back and the neck ribbing a la Yarn Harlot.
