One word about the armholes. Following the instructions exactly you will need to put your 30 sts per armhole on the holder after a YO row i.e. in the row when you knit all stitches; otherwise you would need to put 30 stitches on the holder and cast on 31.So, there is a YO stitch on your stitch holder.

I like the different yarns in the stimulus package and the fact that I can use them in any order I want; it gives a little wriggle room for creativity.
The pattern is great to show off the different yarns and textures.
I am using Jane Richmond’s double knot method to join the yarns; the “magic knot“. It will definitely save time in the end since I won’t have to weave in yarn ends.
When binding off I used KnitFreedom’s method of neatening the last stitch when binding off in the round.
