4/11/2018--Pattern calls for US 2 (for ribbing) and US 3 (for body) needles, but couldn’t get gauge with the US 3. Went up to a US 5 for the body. Using the US 3 for the ribbing.

4/28/2018--Finished the back after having to rip out the raglan shaping three times before finally figuring out the pattern instructions. Pattern reads like there’s an extra decrease on each knit side. Also it doesn’t make clear not to decrease on the purl side as previously established for several of the sizes. Reading through the pattern, this language is repeated for all raglan shaping. To be clear, the raglan shaping is as follows: Dec 1 at each end of each right (knit) side row as established (that is, k6, ssk, k to last 8, k2tog, k6; follow instructions for eyelet row as established); do not dec on back (purl) side.

5/10/18--After letting sleeve #1 sit overnight, I re-read the shaping instructions for the top bit. I guess the designer condensed the instructions for publication due Rowan space restrictions. I wrote it out line by line for clarity, and will post it here or in a blog entry later.

5/11/2018--Started the right sleeve (sleeve #2).

9/4/2018--After letting this sit for months, I finished the seaming today. Next is picking up the stitches for the front and neck bands.

9/5/2018--Sewed on the button and calling it good. Opting out of the embroidery after realizing how easily this yarn snags.
