The more sweaters you knit, the more you know how you like them to fit. I took Kirsten’s fabulous pattern and added these details to make it work for my body!

Picot Hem- I knew this would help keep the sweater from rolling or riding up… that little bit of weight and structure the picot hem adds at the hips really helps!

Waist Shaping- I took the measurements from Cascabel

Shortened the yoke- I have a surprisingly short underarm to neckline dimension, and almost always have to do this!

Short Rows- both below and above the eyelet yoke design, this helps fit the yoke better to my shoulders and curves neckline more.
