Notes

I knitted the sleeves open to 43” length.

To make the fronts longer to better fit my body shape, I added 8 stockinette rows before starting the short rows section (Knitted 11 rows instead of the 3 called for in the pattern for size L).

Added another section of 8 stockinette rows after I finished the short rows section and before starting the front radial increases section. (knitted 11 rows instead of 3 in the pattern.)

Body edge on US4 needles. I added little bases to try and avoid rolling of edge.

I picked up a bit more stitches along the fronts, I did pick 3 skip 1 instead of the pick 3 skip 1, pick 2 skip 1 in the pattern - to make sure the fronts will be longer than in the original - it worked nicely.
