Notes

First bit of errata found. The stitches for the zipper facing on the left front should be cast on at the beginning of the row, not the end. As written, the facing would be on the underarm side.

My gauge on 6’s turned out to be 5 sts to the inch instead of 5.5, but I wasn’t going to knit a 52” sweater on 4s or 5s. HELL NO. So I did a little math and stick to the 6s and knit one of the smaller versions. I really like how dense the fabric at this gauge.

Most of the first sleeve is finished after the weekend at Vogue Knitting Live. I’m hoping to get most of it done by Feb 7th, just in time for the Husband’s birthday. And if not, no big, since it’s a secret knit anyway.

Name patch is from Stitch a Logo
