Notes

The warmest, cushiest, cuddle up sweater! Took forever to knit, but well worth it! Should have made it a bit longer

Modifications:

  • Body Heam - 13” from underarm added 5 garter stitch ridges.
  • Collar - I have 35 stitches along back, between front shoulder inc. Done about 5 ridges at the neck. To create a bit of flare for the collar. I opted to evenly space 10st to open up the back of the collar a little. Making the collar 8” deep along the front.
  • Sleeves - 29” and I fold back the cuff. I did one more repeat of the decrease instructions then k5, k2tog, on the last row before beginning the garter stitch cuff.

2nd day of knitting: A little frogging! Ok I am officially changing my name to “Holly Golightly” Rofl. Got to 200st with 4 sleeves!
