This time I turned my attention to a cardigan I made back in March 2010. The pattern was Oaksike by Louisa Harding.

I find that the sleeves are too loose. There is no shaping to the sleeves so the cuffs tend to be a bit floppy.
Three years on from the making, I want this cardigan to be the best and so the sleeves have now had a reknit.
I cast on 20 less stitches than the pattern calls for and increased gradually up the arm. I now have a wonderfully fitted cuff and a shapely sleeve.
I can now declare the cardigan perfect!
Time now, I think, to move on from this obsession with sleeves.
