Notes

SLEEVES:
2 straight rounds on sleeves after pickup.
10 rounds ribbing.

NECK:
5 rounds ribbing

WAISTBAND RIBBING:
10 rounds ribbing.

I used the Invisible Ribbed Bind Off on Neck and Waistband ribbing. I used a different stretchy bind off for sleeves. I definitely like the invisible one better, but I wasn’t going back to the sleeves.

The first time I knit the collar, I picked up 98 stitches (pattern calls for 90) and knit the ribbing. It was SUPER floppy…and not right. I ripped it out and reknit it. I still picked up 98 stitches, but on the first ribbing round I decreased down to 90 stitches. The collar lays much better and fits better :)

I did not gauge swatch for this garment. It is oversized (at least 5-6 inches of positive ease on me, but it is perfect for how I wished to wear it. I wanted a slightly cropped, larger drapey sweater to throw on over sundresses and tanks in the summer time. I have another sweater quantity of this yarn, and if I made this again, I would most definitely make a size down to get a slightly more “finished” look. That being said, I got exactly what I was going for with this one…in one week!
