Notes

Mods to pattern:
Eyelet row: (K2TOG, YO) on rows 13, 25, 37, 61, 73, 85, 105
Attached I-Cord bind off: after last knit row, and before bind off I seamed the shoulders & sleeves, picked up stitches around the neck and then knit the attached i-cord bind off.
I-Cord button hole: I knit the button row without button holes and then created one button hole while knitting the i-cord bind off. Great YouTube video on this technique here.
