I used a sweater in Debbie Bliss Summer Essentials as a guide. My yarn was heavier and I wanted to have a bit of ribbing at the bottom so as not to end up with the curly wurlies.
Enter (yet again) Barbara Walker’s Knitting From the Top and off I went. I knit up a swatch and used that gauge to wing a pattern based on the book’s instructions. It’s really a handy book. Just try on as you go and voila.

Now, despite the heat, I’ll be starting that nice warm Tangled Yoke Cardigan. Heatwave, wool and alpaca and a nice strong floor fan. Yeah, that’s normal.
