Notes

My own design. I had designed and knitted a sweater for Karin and wanted a similar one for myself! The patterns are the same, but the shape is different.

I also wanted to try an overlapping neckband, and I think it worked. Another experiment was starting the sleeves knitting short rows back and forth after picking up stitches around the arm hole + the gusset stitches. This gave the sleeves slightly better shape, I believe.
