Notes

This was my project for the 2014 Winter Olympics. This was a very well-written pattern, and I love the finished sweater. I plan on knitting another one for myself, and my 22 year old daughter has asked me to knit her one. She is very picky, so that’s about the highest compliment a design can get! :-)

Notes:

The sleeves fit a bit tight, so beware. Also, for my sleeves I only knit 4 rows after the increases instead of 15, but I have short arms!
