Notes

Gauge using 5.5mm needle = 4 x 5.5”, Waist = 42”, Length from underarm to waist = 16”, Bust (circumference underarm to underarm) = 39”, sleeve length from underarm = 19”, Collar = 8” (I shortened it by 1/2” on purpose).

I blocked in luke warm water and rung out in towels. I wasn’t aggressive in blocking so my gauge stayed the same as preblock.

Everything about this pattern was spot on. The only change I would make is to eliminate the two stitches between cabling to hug my waist a bit more.

I wore it all day today - a big winter storm hit and the temps are dipping. This sweater is so comfortable and warm. A keeper.
