Knit from the top down, Moonlight can be tried on as it’s being knit and customized to fit you! Just after joining the underside of the sleeves with a three-needle bind-off, pop it on over your head to be sure it’s comfortable. If you need a little more wiggle room, undo the three-needle bind- off and add some more length equally to the back and front. If you’re a particularly busty gal, consider adding some short-rows for the bust (see page 112), beginning about 1” (2.5 cm) after joining the sleeves together. The length of the lace on the body and sleeves can also be adjusted to suit the vision you have for your sweater.
