Notes

My second time making this (First came out way too big). I will be using several modifications to make this a usable size & shape.

Front was knitted with 2 different yarns. One solid, one self-striping, switching after every 2 rows.
Back & ribbed bands were done in the solid.

Mods:
• Used MUCH smaller needles
• Used worsted weight yarn
• Worked until body was 15” not 17”
• Knit front first, then matched up the row count for the back.
• Armholes: picked up 108 stitches & only knit until rib was 1” wide.

And it FITS!!!!!
