Cashmere / Nylon

Knitted with 80% Cashmere 20% Nylon 2x 2/26 yarn. Tension 4* on the Silver reed 830(fine gauge). This is fully machine washable and tumble driable. No shrinking. Feels beautifully soft. The colour is not that well represented here, but is a pale, pastel lime.

The width is 56cm(22") in total, length is 51 cm(20") with sleeve from shoulder to cuff end is 53cm (almost 21").

Double stocking stitch neckline, joined on the machine.
Fully fashioned sleeve head and body shaping. I moved sts 4 and 5 from out outer edge onto needles 6 and 7 and then moved the 3 edge stitches in by two sts.
A shallow 2 x2 rib on hem and suffs. Tension 1/1. 17 rows.( I start knitting rib from left after cast on and 2 cric rows, ending on left. My final row, rwo 17, is knit at MT which makes it easier and neater when transfering back to MB.)
