Garter Yoke Cardi, Done!

I finally finished my Garter Yoke Cardi from Knit1 Magazine.
Morning 93 - Finished
I pretty darn happy with the results. The shaping on it is quite flattering & keeps the sweater from looking too bulky like so many handknits. The only thing I changed on the pattern was the sleeves. The pattern had 3/4 length sleeves with no shaping. I wanted long fitted sleeves. It took me 4 tries to get the decreases right but it ended up being as simple as decreasing 2 stitches every 12 rows. Now, I have long arms & a shorter person may want to decrease more often.

My only worry is that the buttons are a little too small for the buttonholes even though they are the size that was called for. I really like the buttons I picked though so if it does keep coming unbuttoned I’ll just sew the buttonholes up a little bit.
