Notes

18 st/4in, 6.5 rows/inch

No mods, but the buttonhole row for the M size was written a little weird. I think it implies that another stitch is used in the bind-off because the stitch numbers don’t add up. I tried a tulips buttonhole instead but it was too loose, so I just did a (k2tog, yo,yo, ssk) for the buttonhole instead.

Buttons are Organic Elements coconut buttons from JoAnns.

I really like the sweater, but there is some serious gaping when it is buttoned up.

Really enjoying this yarn. Feels good for being mostly acrylic. I don’t love doing stockinette flat because I have to purl tightly or figure out how much smaller of a needle I need on the purl rows. A little hard to motivate for all that stockinette!

I feel kind of annoyed that I have so much yarn left over! Not that that’s a bad thing, but I could have used this yarn for a sweater that took more yardage…
