Notes

Might run out of yarn. Maybe will do 3/4 sleeves, but can also just order more yarn…

First swatch on 6s: 19.5 st and 30 rows/4in. Same after washing. Think I will just go up to 7s and go for it, making the 34/36 (I’m closer to a 36/38).

The body used up almost all of five balls. I did the neckband already, in garter for six garter ridges.

10/23: Knit almost an entire sleeve and realized that it is just too wide. There was a fair amount of denial going on. I have started the second sleeve doing the decreases every 8th row (instead of every 12th for my size) and it seems to be better. I just have to finish this sleeve and rip out the other one and redo it… Will totally have enough yarn for full length sleeves!

10/26: Had to break into my last ball of yarn, but surprised I made it. When trying it on, the bottom garter hem flares like crazy. I’ve even tightened up my bind-off a couple times. If that doesn’t get fixed with blocking, I will redo the hem in a smaller needle size.

The edge was fine after blocking. Done!
