Quick knit with magic result!

I had three skeins of Kalinka yarn and when I saw this pattern i knew they would be perfect together. I followed pattern except a few changes (see below). And I absolutely love how this pullover turned out. It looks a bit funny before blocking, but a little bit of blocking worked it’s magic. ;)

Project notes
Gauge: 20 sts = 10 cm/4” in stockinette after blocking.
Decreases: I wanted a slightly more fitted pullover than the pattern so I made a few decreases and increases at the waist. Also I made my sleeves more fitted by making two decreases every 6 cm. Total 10 decreases.
Needles: I didn’t want an A-line shaping so I made project on 3,5 mm needles all the way.
Elongated stitch pattern: I choose to make one yarn over instead of two wraps. I think the elongated stitch turned out better that way. Maybe I’m a loose knitter?
