Project: Phildar Hiver #416 "Potiron" Sweater

Project Details
Pattern: Phildar Automne/Hiver # 416 Style 30

Yarn: Bergere de France Sport as sub for Phildar Quietude.
Yarn is 50% Wool 50% Acrylic shade Corrida.Same fiber compostion as the original yarn.

Was able to get the guage so real fudging required.
Intricate cable design with at least 4 different panels worked over different number of rows worked at the same time.
But excellent Phildar chart and schematics.Great instructions if you can knit in French.
Unable ( or rather unwilling to contemplate short rows) to add to front bust length , so I knit the back in one size smaller to give shimmy room.
There was a French Knitalong when the magazine came out.
Love the swater loads
