Notes

Started as a car project for a few upcoming road trips. Thought it would be a super straightforward boring knit but was pleasantly surprised! The tubular cast ons, kitchener stitch, short row shaping, and tubular bind off at the neckline gave me lots of practice on some techniques I was either rusty on or had never done with the perfect amount of straight stitch in between. Loved this pattern and totally recommend it!
