Notes

I’m doing the seamed version with the malabrigo yarn as the front and drops lace for the back. I’m using 6 mm needles for the malabrigo and 5 mm for the drops lace.
I will be using the drops lace held double, so effectively I will have 400 m instead of 800 m.

I don’t know if I have enough yarn, but we’ll see how it will work out.

I finished the sweater a few weeks ago, but it was waaaay too short. I´ve added 30 (!) rows to the bottom and now it’s perfect.

yarn usage:

I have 17 grams left of the grey, which means I used about 80 grams held double (for the back only)
I have 11 grams left of the green, which means I used about 189 grams (for the front, sleeves, seaming and neck)

size:
I did the XS version with M sized sleeves. It worked out perfectly. I’m normally a size M, but this sweater is oversized enough for my liking.

Blocking:
I wetblocked the sweater. The malabrigo yarn grows exponentialy in width, but almost nothing in length. Hence the problem with my sweater being too short.
