About: Eli (Skeindeer Knits Podcast) and I are co-hosting a KAL for the Damejakka Loppa cardigan by Pinneguri!
Duration: Since the pattern is very involved, we're keeping the deadline flexible. When we see participants close to completing their cardigan, we'll set a KAL end date.

I finished sewing Butterick B6453 Patterns by Gertie. I spent the previous weekend making several muslins to get a perfect fit. I gave it an SBA (Small Bust Adjustment) and took advice from Casey Maura's blog post about getting a better bust fit.
