Notes

My stripes are 16 rounds MC, 6 rounds CC.

I ended up fudging this to a dangerous degree, because what I actually should have done was knit up an entire mini-skein to see how many stitches I could get out of it, and then compare that to full bust + 2 full bicep stitch counts to see how many rows I could get out of each mini. I didn’t do that, and it worked out fine, but required a little doing on the upper sleeves.

Project subtitle the second: Just in case you needed a handknit sweater for Pride

This sweater is the ultimate in my twee ridiculousness, and I could not be more thrilled.
