Notes

This is a very simple top-down pattern. Suitable for newbees to top down knitting. And a great classical piece of garment. I am so proud I finished this even after 6 years and 4 months.

Restart I on Sep 12, 2011. In the mean time I could not stand mindless knitting. Now I need it.
Like the touch and the changing colours of the yarn.

Restart II on Aug 03, 2012. Finally reached the part where you seperate the sleeves. Phew…

Restart III in March, 2013. Every year a little bit.
Somehow used the wrong needle size. Had to rib back to the sleeve holes. Oh …man, will this one ever be finished?

Another restart in Sep 2014.
Started with a short row shaping in the back, every 10 stiches a turn.

Podcast Januar 2018 talks about the Featherweight in German.
