Really easy pattern to follow and I love working with this gorgeous, soft and silky yarn!

13th December, 2014:

After a long hiatus I’ve been working on this again. I ended up extending the armholes by an extra pattern repeat as I found they felt too tight, then worked in the number of scs for the sleeve starting row of the next size up. I’ve just completed the first sleeve and it fits perfectly. I have the right gauge and probably could have gone for the smaller sleeves, but they felt uncomfortable under the arms--turns out I like a looser fit there.

I will work the second sleeve, then make the body as long as I can before I run out of yarn :)
