Notes

update: i never wear this because the yarn is so heavy it makes a bulky, unflattering fabric. It would be great in wool.


DO. NOT. LIKE. COTTON.

I love the pattern, but wish i’d picked a wool blend. Oh well, stash yarn needs using up!

Knitted ribbing with 4mm because I seem to have lost my 4.5mm circ. I knitted 19 ribbing rows to compensate.

Added 6 extra rows around the waist.

Decreased to the smallest size at the shoulders.

25/2 - Worrying about running out of yarn! Used more than 8 and I’ve not even finished both sides. Having to put this on hold while I work on a comission.

1/5 - Lost both sleeves in a horrible train related misadventure. Need to order more yarn. Total knitted (and lost) included above
