Notes

IntSweMoDo2019 #2

Mods:
Neckline
-I do not like the tight neckline (and it is simply not flattering when you have a large chest!) so I cast-on using tubular (as per pattern), but cast-on number of stitches after first increase (as per my choosen size ‘L’)
-only did 2 rows of ribbing (again, to make neckline looser).

Hemline
-made longer (11” from underarm, pre-blocking)
-only 5 rows of ribbing before Tubular bind-off (to match neck and sleeves)

Sleeves
-short sleeves for a spring sweater! Picked-up the stitches for the sleeves, as per pattern, knit 1 row. 2 rows of ribbing before making a tubular cast-off (to match neck and hem)

Final (post-blocking) measurements:
Width at underarms: 25”
Width at hem: 26”
Length from underarms: 13.5”
Total length (from back neckline): 24”

I love my job. I get to play around with the most amazing yarns. Like this one!
