I Knit London in London, Greater London

What a great pattern! It was well thought-out - everything just matches up seamlessly. I love who clear the instructions were and all the pictures in the pattern.

My mods:
- skipped rows 8-19 of the body. I’m petite, so I wanted to keep it from being too long on me.
-skipped rows 1-24 of the sleeves since lots of projects said the sleeves were long. They’re still a bit long on me - I could have skipped another 6 rows easily.

  • I knit the side 36 sleeves since lots of projects noted the sleeves were tight. They integrated well with the size 34 body - I had to graft an uneven number of stitches at the underarms and that was it
  • I didn’t cross any of the cables in row 150, as mentioned in several other projects in this size
  • did a collar instead of a hood. I basically followed Olga’s mods - a few short rows in the back, cast off all stitches, picked up stitches for the collars and did ribbing until I liked the length.
