Use this pattern in conjunction with CustomFit. Don’t knit the pouch pocket. Make a wider (boat), mock cowl neckline.

Got gauge with US6.
5.1875sts x 6.5625rows = 1”
Gauge on US6 Circulars
5.5sts x 7.5rows = 1”

Sleeve Mods

  • rib cuff is 23 rows
  • repeat sleeve pattern a total of 17 times (not 19).

Finished the first sleeve! Even when you start with the sleeves, they still take FOREVER.

Finished the second sleeve. Went much faster without feeling the need to measure every few rounds. On to the bottom body.


Sleeves are now attached to the body!
I apparently ignored all of the notes I made on my modifications and just kit it according to the pattern. I’m worried that the sleeves are going to be too long, while the body will be too short. And I’m quite certain that I do not have enough yarn to finish it. :/
But I shall keep on knitting until I can knit no more!
