I absolutely LOVE this sweater! I’ve always wanted a sweater like this. Love how it fits.

MODIFICATIONS: Used JMCO instead of Turkish CO.
Otherwise knit the 42 with her exact numbers.
To obtain gauge I used these needles:
Switched to the US8 needle after about 6 or 8 rows of stockinette. Used US7 needle for the bottom ribbing.
US8 for sleeves but US6 for sleeve cuff.

PATTERN:
Very well written and easy to understand.
The short rows on the collar are so easy and the nicest short rows I’ve used in a garment.
Easy pattern with really nice results. Fits perfectly. Definitely going to make this again.

YARN: Since I haven’t washed it yet, so far I’ve loved working with the yarn and it feels good on.

Since all of December with pre-Christmas is so busy (right up to NYDay), I definitely didn’t pick this up every evening as I usually do with my knitting so it’s taken longer than it should to finish.
