Notes

Quick and fun knit! Used yarn together and had a gauge of 20 per 4” rather than 16. Knit the 38” size and got a 35.5” bust. Perfect!

The pattern IS a quickie for sure and very easy. The lace bit is a snap and would be ok for a beginner.

Besides a gauge change, I also cast on less stitches at the sleeve separation. The neck is worked last. The sweater is knit top-down with a provisional cast on. When the sweater is finished, you pick up the neck stitches and customize away, creating a wide neck or crew neck or anything in between. To achieve a crew neck I knit two rounds, then worked a few sets of German short rows at the back to raise the back neck, then knit a few more rounds making decreases (at first I made too many and I couldn’t get it over my head!) then knit my k1, p1 ribbing. I was chilly when I was knitting the neck and felt I wanted my neck to be nice and warm. If I decide later to make it a bit more open and wide, it will be an easy fix. I’ll wear it a time or two before I decide. I also added length to the sleeves and body.
