Notes

Cast on on New Year’s Eve :) For my daughter, who wears size 10, so made it more like a size 12 so she can have it for awhile.

Using this as my “Downton Abbey” project! Pick it up to knit every time I watch an episode :)

Mods:

  • did extra repeat of cable to make it size 10+ (22 times)
  • picked up 119 st for body
  • did body increases as M1 not YO
  • increased 39 st for both body increase rows to end up with 197 st
  • when dividing for sleeves, divided as follows: (RS) K28, place next 38 on waste yarn, CO12, K65, place next 38 on waste yarn, CO12, K28, total 145 remaining.
  • PU 6 st for sleeves on each side
  • made size 10 hood
