Notes

19 nov 13 | cast on!

22 nov 14 | finished knitting all pieces!

Notes:
Knit everything as per the pattern except for these mods…

Sleeves: knit sleeves approx 1/2” longer than called for as I have kind of long arms.

Neckline: Used a 2x2 rib to finish as the open neckline was a little too open on me. Since I knit for my hip measurement the top half has quite a bit of ease, about 6” which I love, except for the neckline.

Absolutely loved this pattern. It was fun to knit and the finished product is beautiful and really easy to wear. I was a little worried about the Shelter being scratchy while knitting but it softened up really nicely and I can wear it against my skin with no trouble (and I have sensitive skin). Had no trouble with yarn breakage as I knit with pretty normal tension (not tight or loose). That’s about it. LOVE this sweater!!
