Oct. 18th 2010: Gauge of 19 sts to 4”, cast on for the size for 39,5”, goal of 35-36”.
Dec. 16th 2011: I have taken a lot of breaks with this project, and now I keep finding that I’ve jumped between sizes, and none of my numbers match up. Ops.
March 27th 2012: The body has been done for some months, I think I might start the sleeves today.
September 24th 2012: I should have printed out the pattern so I wouldn’t keep switching between which size I’m following instructions for! This is the incorrect way I decreased the sleeve (for repitition, and at least symmetrical sleeves): BO 4 sts at the beginning of the next 2 rows. Decrease 1 st at each end of every RS row 4 times, then every other RS row 2 times, every 6
rows 3 times. BO 3 stitches at the beginning of the next 6 rows. BO final 11 sts.
November 24th 2012: Even with my own notes to myself, I botched the second sleeve cap shaping up. It’s all done now, just putting it together left. If I do make this again, I would try to find a way to make the waist shaping a little less severe, and also make it about 1,5-2” longer below the waist shaping.
