Notes

Nice pattern; like the contiguous sleeves. I have a long torso, and this sweater is a bit long for me. Just a word of warning!

Mods: Instead of hemming sleeves (I was running out of blue yarn), I did six rows of garter stitch. If I knit this again, I will do the same for the hem. I don’t really care for the hemmed hem because it turns up. I had to block the heck out of it to get it to stay flat.

Next time I will also knit a garter stitch neck for a neater look. I’m fine with the rolled look on this sweater, as I wanted it to be more casual.
