Needle: 4.5mm (Jap #8, for knitting), 5.6mm (Jap #12, for binding off)
Found this lot in my grandma’s closet. My grandmother bought this yarn during her annual visit to Shanghai years ago. There were another bag of dark green yarn I was opting for but then learned that my mother already had a project in mind for it and my aunt suggested the purplish blue grey for this project after hearing the description of the cardigan, so I brought this lot home with me!
13 skeins in total about 680+ grams
I started out using Jap #10 (5.1mm) and found the knitting too loose after a few rows of garter stitch and switched to Jap#8 (4.5mm) which turned out nicely AND the gauge's exaclty the same as the original pattern!
4 gull lace pattern repeats
Now off to knit up the sleeves!
