Notes

THIS IS MY SECOND ATTEMPT -

Final notes:
Fit is much better and stays comfortably on my shoulders. back lays nicely and the collar is perfect!

MODS:This time I added a repeat to the top of the shoulder at cast on and took two repeats out of the back. (total # cast on same as pattern calls for) This should address the fit issues many have had with the sleeves and shoulders. I hope this one will be wearable.

when the front ribbing was at 1.5” , added a short row on each front wrapping and Turning at the start of the front raglan seam When the collar at the back of the neck was 2.75” I added a second set of short rows - wrapping and turning at the top of the shoulder.

11/16 - separated for sleeves. so far so good. sleeves look much better and back not so wide. this one might actually stay on my shoulders

11/12 cast on at retreat
