An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

At The Same Time....
I started knitting the right front of my cardigan. It's rather complicated. The sides must be shaped every 6 rows, the middle panel every 4 rows. The cables must be twisted every six rows. The buttonhole band is included, so the buttonholes must be made at specified intervals too. I've made myself a little rough sketch to show all these manoeuvres and help me keep my wits about me.
The pattern doesn't specify an individual designer, just 'Drops Design Studio', but whoever wrote the pattern must've given a lot of thought to how to explain all this in a succinct way. I think they did a pretty good job. Basically, the processes are given separately and the knitter must put them all together.
