New Cardigan

I’m doing a bottom-up cardigan based on Elizabeth Zimmermann’s percentage system. The stitch pattern is columns of stockinette with seed stitch dividing ribs and some cables on the body. (Sleeves don’t have cables) I plan on knitting back and forth on the body. Right now I’m doing the first sleeve to double check gauge.

Yarn: Rowan Felted Tweed #165
Gauge: 6st. per inch, 7.5 rows per inch
Needles: KP Options size 0 and 2 US
