Heirloom was a joy to knit! I worked the whole sweater on one 32" Addi, all cuffs and neckband were 10 rows. I counted the X's and O's in the pattern photo, worked that many, and was pleased to get the exact pattern measurement for length. The middle photo shows the sweater with a notebook for scale.
Lisa thought of so many clever details in this design. For example, when you work the hat, the pattern says to decrease 8 stitches evenly around - just the number of the cables, so you can decrease in each cable and not have to figure out the number of stitches in between the decreases. All cables were a variation of the C4F or C4B - it's hard to explain, but you could always tell which row you were on by what was happening with the braided cable. And there are the lovely details like the saddle shoulders and crochet button loops.
I must admit I am tempted to put this away for a grandchild who may come in well over a decade! I decided that would be bad luck, so it will be gifted later this week to the friend it was intended for, and her new baby, Michael William.
