Notes

I really, really love this sweater! Weaving in ends took a few hours, but it is totally worth it. :)

When I was little I had a puffin stuffie from the zoo that I adored. It seems only fitting to make this puffin-inspired pullover.

Mods

  • used fc41 instead of 142 (I had fc41 in my stash already!)
  • I had a small mishap (of my own fault, not due to the pattern) when I ran out of yarn on the back neck short rows. I guess I knit the body a leeettle too long! I ended up ripping out 6 or so rows of the body ribbing and using that yarn to finish.
  • lengthened sleeves -- that’s why I bought an extra skein
