Notes

28-12-2016

I loved this knit and even though I got second sleeve-itis I still think it is a very quick knit.

I sized down after reading other people’s project about the fit being too big.

I wasn’t paying attention and did one extra set of increases in the raglan yoke so ended up with a total of 284 stitches for the body + sleeves. I think since I sized down the 4 extra body stitches actually gave me a better fit than if I followed the pattern for the smaller size.

When I knit the sleeves I did 1 set of decreases on each side of the BOR to match the number of stitches to the pattern (54sts)

Blocked with wires and pulled the body down to tidy up the enlongated stitches.
