Notes
This sweater is knit sideways, starting from the left side. The body is knit in 2 flat pieces, then after seaming the shoulders the sleeves are picked up from the side edges and knit downwards towards the wrist. Circular needles are used to accommodate large number of stitches.
Measure your gauge swatch carefully. The stitch gauge affects the length of your finished sweater, while the row gauge affects the finished width. Row gauge is important in this project! A difference in row gauge may affect the amount of yarn needed.
