Notes

Fun sweater! Next time I might try it without the ribbing so that the edges are flat and roll a bit. Followed pattern except for color work and the mods below.

Sleeves: I wanted them fitted so I added an extra decrease 2 inches after the last decrease (four decreases total). I also knit two together after the K, P, at the beginning of the first rib row on the sleeve ends. This made them a little bit tighter. Since the gauge was slightly different for the Madelinetosh yarn I did 12 rows of ribbing on the sleeves instead of 9. I also switched to size 4 needles with the Madelinetosh yarn.

Body: I knit 12 inches from bottom of underarm to top of the ribbing on the body. I used a size 4 needle for the Madelinetosh yarn and only used it for the ribbing on the body.

9/28 Update:
I’m going to frog this puppy because I never wear this sweater but LOVE the yarn. Destined for the Palmyre shawl woot woot!
