....testing walnuss

the testing group is on the go.
we are testing Anke's mandelinspired cardi

yarns. worked doubled with one strand
alpaca superlight col 7490065 and one strand
3 ply wool/acrylic blend (lightweight)
mohair luxe col 6980146 for contrasting stripes
worked together with the 3 ply wool


co for smallest size on 3 mm needles
- the saddles are pretty firm due to this needle size
- saddle pleats look like they should!! ;))
body is worked on 4mm needles
2 sts less for the sleeves
only did the armholes 17 cm long
only 4 underarmsts, to get a more fitted sleeve
buttonholes every 5 cm - i want more buttons!

this time i will do this without the sidepleats
