Notes

This is project 13 - this must be good!…and it is a very quick & fun knit. The yarn & the pattern are perfect for each other.

I never knitted a sweater front/back piece in 3 evenings. A new record!

CO plus 8 stiches
1st row (WS) - p1,p1,p2tog…..
8 additional rows on raglan
Sleeves worked with 8 extra rows as well, with no decreases.

Each sleeve took one skein of yarn. Very nice - no extra threads to hide. I would always change skeins on the edges and not within the fabric.

Left the two side seams (body) open at the rib.

Used one skein less than pattern states. But bought one more skein, because I made the sweater a bit wider.
From the two remaining skeins I will make a matching long cowl.
