Test knit due by March 15th.

I didnt get gauge originally so I went up a needle size. If I were to knit this again I would add another inch to the body when knitting in the round. It does grow after blocking but that also depends on your yarn choice.

I did add length to the sleeves and ended up spreading out the originally called for number of decreases to make sure the sleeves wouldn’t end up too tight. I also couldn’t find my blocking wires so my hem is a little wonky. My favorite thing about this is that most of my ends are just threaded into the folded hem.
