Notes

September 29, 2016: Oof, it’s a year later but I’ve got the sleeves on the finished body! I’ve stopped using the pattern and am using my tried-and-true picked- up, top-down sleeve formula in this blog post.

September 28, 2015:

Hmm, I think I’m going to change this one up a bit. I love the ornate motif more than the chainlink motif that goes up the entire body. I think I’m going to keep striping like the bottom all the way up!

September 16, 2015:

I couldn’t resist trying this new yarn for the Rowan A/W 15/16 season. It is seriously light as a feather! 115 yds of DK weight in 25g? Unheard of. Even with stranding 2 yarns at the same time, this pull will end up being very ethereal.

I’m making a size in between S and M: cast-on 118sts, increase to 119 after ribbing.

As usual, Rowan pattern upper arms look too big. I’ll be picking up stitches around the armhole with short rows and knitting downward.
