I fell in love with this pattern the second it hit Caitlin’s Instagram and couldn’t wait to cast on. Those knit-four-togethers were a beast, but well worth the effort!

I knew - KNEW - that I had another skein of this well-aged Amber Trinket hanging around the house somewhere, but then…didn’t. Had I realized this a bit earlier, I would have alternated skeins to ease the dye’screpancy; instead, I ordered the closest skein I could find (over three years after the original purchase) and knit on. It’s a bit…obvious.

Wanted a slightly more fitted sweater (see also Tosh Light’s tendency to grow), so cast on 35.5” for 36” worth of actual chest. Worked the sleeves per the Small instructions and left out the decreases, lest things be too snug.
