Notes

I finally made a sweater for me! I was never gonna knit this sweater I said… But then it started growing on me, and I got some ideas in my head. And here’s the result!

I’m very happy with it and it’s super warm! :)

Thanks so much to IvrigA-I for the notes! :)
Detailed notes in norwegian here: Smoochie

Cast on 74 sts, did 7 cm ribbing.
Knit to 55 cm, cast off 14 in the middle for the neck opening and knit the front from there. Both front and back are 55 cm with 7 cm ribbing.
I picked up 24 stitches from the front and 28 from the back for sleeves, thus making the back longer.
Knit 21 ridges of garter stitch before starting decreases on the sleeves. Decreased 1 stitch each side every 4 rows a total of 6 times = 40 stitches. When I had 34 ridges I cast off, right side facing.
Knitted the heart, sewed on. Crocheted edges on neckline and sleeves.
