I didn’t quite nail the green screen space shot, but I was mostly going from memory and I didn’t have a tall enough tripod.
I used 10 skeins for the whole sweater and have about 4 yards left over. I love when it’s that close!
I knit the bottom half of the sweater as an XXL and then decreased to the XL size at the waist for the rest of the sweater. If I were to cast on knowing what I know now, I’d knit one size smaller with about 2 inches of negative ease. The yarn is SOOPER forgiving and stretchy and can totally handle it. I’m a 44 and knit exactly a 44 (I’m dead on gauge) but I should have knit the 40.
The yarn feels weird to knit with at first, and looks pretty awful unblocked. Wash it and block it though and it gets super slinky and shiny and frakkin’ awesome.
