Notes

Modifications: I knitted the halves together at the shoulders with a three-needle bind-off. I won’t do this again in the future as I think it looks sloppy, but that shows my progress as a knitter. Right now, I’m not in the mood to pick out everything and re-do it (this may change come autumn when I actually wear it). If (when?) I knit this again I will figure out how to add some better shaping in the front. I’m from Eastern European stock and er.. not all of me is super petite. I will also add a bit more length (2-3 inches) as I need my kidneys covered (see mum, I do listen to you).

I bound off the ribbing at the neck and armbands with my standard “knit two in pattern, slip back, k2tog or p2tog as appropriate” as that makes it stretchy. When I did what I believe to be a regular bind-off for the neck I could barely get it over my head.
