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.

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.
