I AM SO HAPPY WITH HOW THIS SWEATER TURNED OUT!! I’m so in love with it. What a fun pattern!

Done at a totally different gauge and made with negative ease. I made calculations based on my gauge, and plugged in my own numbers. I made the strips on the yoke smaller than as per pattern, and I finished the neck sooner (because of what I’ve read that others have said about the fit). I mostly just winged the yoke decreases. I did garter trim for the cuffs, neck, and hem rather than the hem called for in the pattern.
