Notes

I’ll be making some simple modifications to this pattern so that it fits better than the original did. The first sweater was knit when I had only been knitting for less than six months so I’m hoping this one will fit better and actually see some use.

Mods:

Since I wanted to avoid the A-line look, I cast on for the smallest size and decreased down to the bust size for the 34” (94sts, one decrease on either side after ribbing, one set in the body).

Knit body to 16”.

Knit front and back to length for smallest size (7.5”).

Considering my belly is enormous right now (9 months pregnant will do that to you) I probably won’t get to try it on for a while. I think it looks better than last time though.
