I can not believe how long that took! Don’t forget the last increase on that left edge! I don’t know how many times I had to rip back because I had forgotten.

After a while it became pretty easy to memorize the pattern.

I realized towards the end that I never did a swatch for this! Eek! I think mine is a lot longer before those armholes. I was running out of my main color yarn, so I did my sleeves with two color brioche instead of single color. I only had about 15grams of yarn left for the sleeves. Ideally they would be a little longer, but I think they will block out longer. I hope this doesn’t end up huge!

I needed a second skein of the KP Hawthorne yarn but the second skein I ordered looked nothing like the first one. Someone in the KP group was willing to help me out and sell me her skein that was a closer match.

6/23: Finished blocking! It is huge! I’m glad I didn’t make my sleeves longer. Ideally it would be a little shorter before the sleeve openings, but it is nice and big and snuggly.
