LOVED knitting this. The yarn is very nice and softens up after wet blocking. I don’t have pictures of the back, but the pattern continues on the back.

The chart symbols are tiny. To easily distinguish the ssp from the p2tog I dotted the ssp squares with a red marker. Note, the designer has updated the chart with more colors and it helps. Make sure you have the most recent version.

My knitting tip is to use a lot of markers in different colors. The last picture shows my marker placement. The purple is my bor and green is the opposite side. The orange markers begin the chart and the blue and pink markers are essential and match the chart’s columns.

1/9/22 finished with one sleeve and body half done.

9/22 picked up again to finish for fall. It’s so beautiful.
