I knit this as a more mindless project to give my brain a rest while revising and editing my thesis. I wanted to be able to wear long sleeved shirts underneath but unfortunately I somehow decided that this meant I needed 3 inches of positive ease. While this created a sweater that was much too big, It was really snuggly. I moved the buttons to the side of the neck, so it buttons across the chest, but it also looks really nice hanging open, which is how I usually wear it. I also shortened the body and the sleeves so as not to be drowning in the wool. The hardest part was the cast on. Trust that Ysolda knows what she is doing and it will all make sense.
