I decided to be a good knitter for this project and actually did a gauge swatch. Good thing I did as I had to go down a needle size to get gauge.
I also alternated skeins as Madelinetosh Pashmina is hand dyed it can have some variations from skein to skein and it can be very obvious in a garment when you change skeins.
I did make some modifications to this pattern. I separated for the sleeves and then continued for the body then picked up and knitted the sleeves in the round. Many people have done this mod on Ravelry and it seems to work well.
This cardigan is a great piece for Spring and Autumn and cool summer nights. The pattern was easy to follow and there is a great community in the Ravelry discussion boards to help if you have any questions.
