Notes

I started this when we were in the first rounds of edits for Knitting it Old School, so I omitted the lozenge pattern to save my sanity. I didn’t have the brain space to think about pattern. (Apparently I didn’t think about size either.)

Stupidly I didn’t try it on when I joined for the underarms and just kept knitting and finished the body. I put it on and it’s WAY too big for me. (Why the hell I’m I making everything too big? this is the third sweater I’ve done that with. Note to self: your boobs aren’t as big as you think they are)

I should have knit something more in the 41ish range. D’oh! I might mattress stitch up the sides from around the waist upward to suck up some of the extra fabric. Also, I will curse my own name as I do it.

(The last photo shows how big it really is on me. Just for the sake of honesty.)
