Notes

Modifications on my blog.

Feb 5- It fits!
Feb 1- sweater is washed and blocking. Things are looking good size-wise.

Jan 28- Halfway through one sleeve, using size 4 doublepoints. So far the top seems to fit very snug when I try it on. This is a good thing pre-wash. I won’t be adding as much extra length as last time since it grew longer and wider.

Jan 5- starting a new one casting on fewer stitches in anticipation of sweater growth (my last caramel fit perfect until washing and it grew huge.)

Using my last Caramel as a gigantic swatch, I decided to make a much smaller size like micheline did so I used these numbers for set-up row.5- 40-8-43-8-40-5 and increased to 5- 63- 54- 89- 54- 63- 5 at last increase row.
