5/17: Finally finished! For the last month at least, I’ve only had a few inches of a sleeve and the neckband to finish.

-Size 6 needles for body to get gauge, size 5 for ribbing.
-Left out the increases in the body, knitted body until 14” before doing ribbing.
-Picked up 3 of every 4 stitches for neckline: 96 st. in total. Knit a couple of extra rounds on the neckband and just used a loose, standard bind off.

Overall I’m really happy with it! The sleeves are a bit loose below the elbow, I probably could have decreased more. Also, the sweater is maybe 1” shorter than I’d like, but it will probably stretch out over time. I left out the increases for the body but I’m very hippy so maybe I shouldn’t have. It’s a great basic sweater, though!

1/23: Swatched in the round. With size 6 needles, my gauge is 18-19 stitches and 24 rows. I was planning on making the largest size (41.5”), but with my gauge being slightly off and a tendency for my sweaters to be too large, I’m going to knit the 37.5” size and hope it turns out.
