Little knits

This yarn is so soft! Feels like a squishy cloud. I’m crazy about this yarn and the uneven texture of the stockinette. But if I had not purchased this on deep discount from Little Knits, I doubt I would have ever given it a try as it’s quite expensive.

I thought the directions for the set in sleeves confusing and too complicated to follow. I prefer my method: http://www.kristenrettig.com/2017/02/how-to-knit-set-in-t...

I made the smallest size but still a little big on me. I have very narrow shoulders and sometimes don’t account for that in my knitting. Still, I even love it a bit oversized. The V is a great shape, wide and deep, but not too, and love the garter hems. Overall this is a good, basic pattern to have in every pattern collection and the kind of thing I wear often. I have it on now.

I also made it shorter.
