Notes

I ran out of c2, despite having 60 yards more than the pattern called for AND despite working it on smaller needles for a tighter gauge. No extra knitting, but if you’ve done ABBA and decide to knit B, I’d recommend having at least 300 yards/75 grams to make sure you can knit it. I’m a chronic under-user of yarn (I always need less than a pattern calls for) so I was really surprised that I could only get to the second elbow with my yardage. I don’t know that I love the solution I came up with, but it looks intentional so hopefully it will grow on me. And if not, at least I’ve shifted two long-hibernating skeins out of my stash.
