Notes

Not using pattern as it doesn’t come in my size & I haven’t bought it, but basing it on the ‘Lightweight Pullover’ Design.
This developed over time into something quite different, with a good and the waist shaping centred in the back.
Knitted long as the merino content will enevitably lead it to shrink and I love the longer length.

Gauge; 24sts x 32rows/4inch on 3.5mm

168sts for cowl neck.
Short rows for back.
Divide for raglan,
58 for back
16 for each sleeve
78 for front.
Inc 8sts every other row.

Ball1: 5/01/12 Cowl complete
..
Ball6: ../01/15 below bust

8 and a bit balls for body (including cowl - which I may remove)
Partial ball left in bag.
Sleeves:
116sts
19” long
Decrease to 9” at cuff (54sts)
Decrease over 18” - 18x8 = 144rows

116-54 = 62. Divided by 2 (pairs decreases) 31 decreases.
144/31=4.6.
So decrease every 5rounds 14 times
Then every 4 rounds 16 times
