Yep. I love a Pop-Life Cardigan!
My final (for the time being) Pop-Life Cardigan was finished for my niece.  I hope she loves it as much as me.  

I have a new video up over on YouTube if you are interested in hearing me talk about it.  (Wearing Dirty Denim.)  
It truly is a quick knit and a very versatile sweater to wear.  

Wearing Reclaimed Blue.  Hanging from my hand on the left is Dirty Denim.  Two on my right are Washed Out Denim.  
Needles:  US 8/ US 11
Size:  I finally heard back from Wool and the Gang.  I purchased this pattern when it was a OneSize pattern.  They currently have 6 sizes.  The size I am wearing is equivalent to the Size 2.

Modifications and Helpful Tips:
• Use bamboo needles.
• This size takes 5 balls of Billie Jean cotton.
• If the yarn is twisted too tightly, re roll it by hand into a ball.  This helps take out the twist and makes the yarn much softer! 
• Knit the fronts and the sleeves simultaneously.
• To achieve this length, knit 18 rows of rib and then knit 62 rows for the fronts before the neck increases.
• Knit the back in one piece by joining the fronts after you cast on the stitches for the neck.
• To achieve this length for back, knit 68 more rows (including the increase for neck rows) for a total of 130 rows and then knit the 18 rows of rib on back piece.
• Knit the sleeves simultaneously.
• Sleeves are NOT knit in reverse stockinette.
• Knit rib on sleeves for 18 rows.  Then knit 40 rows before binding off.  The increases end after 56 stitches omitting 2 of the increase for a total of 4 stitches.
• Front band is 200 stitches by picking up 1 stitch in every row.
• When binding off band, decrease by knitting 2 together along neck edge while binding off.  (Neck edge = where you cast on the 12 stitches along neck.
• Fold your sweater to match the front rib to the bottom rib and seam the ribs together at the sides. 
• Continue up side seam for a few inches. 
• Fold sleeve together and match the center stitch of sleeve to the center stitch of shoulder.  Start here seaming sleeve to body of sweater.

  3. Okay besides baby clothing, hats, cowls, ponchos I have never made myself clothing. I have done baby pants and dresses for my kiddos. Hoping I can do this. I’m going to start today doing the two front panels simultaneously. Winding my yarn balls now.

  4. If you won’t have access to laundry while you’re gone, you should plan to bring a change of clothes for each day of the week. https://tutuappx.com/

  5. If you can, wash your clothes during your trip (even if it's just a quick sink-wash and hanging the clothes out to dry) so that you have to pack even fewer items. Vidmate
