Cecilia Niemeyer KAL – second week

And there we are at Week 2 of Cecilia Niemeyer KAL! And I would really like to ask for your help! Dear KAL participant, if you are knitting Cecilia Cardigan I would love to have your support on sharing your project on Ravelry! This effort will be truly appreciated! Thank you! Nobody asked me about bust darts, however I'm still game for any questions and calculations! Please feel free to write here on the comments or email me at paula@peaceknirlove.com! Basically what we have to figure out is how much fabric we need to create with short rows as demonstrated on the illustration! sketch   Shaping waist ***If for any reason you don't like or don't want to shape the waist, skip the whole "Shaping waist" section and work rows 3 and 4 for 23 [23, 23, 23, 24, 24, 24] times.
