Notes

no knit-in buttonholes - plan to strengthen button band with ribbon and add machine sewn button holes later

row gauge is perfect, but stitch gauge is slightly off…

Color A: green
Color B: brown

Move decreases from middle of color B stripe to RS of garter stripe

Sleeve: 62 rows plus ribbing (12 color B stripes)
Cast-off with 4mm crochet hook (edit: still a bit tight…)

Body:
68 rows plus ribbing (13 Color B stripes)
(edit: inexplicably the same length as sleeves)

Construction can be improved by
-moving increases/decreases to first row of garter stripe (invisible and easier to remember)
-knitting body before sleeves
-knitting on 8 underarm stitches each for body
-picking up and knitting 8 underarm stitches for each sleeve
(less puckering/ better fit -- did not do this here but with second version in grey-red)
-adding fake slipstitch seams to hide color change
