Notes

Mods: I used 4.5mm needles for the hem and sleeve cuffs, and 5.5mm needles for the main body.

5 pairs of short rows on the back after joining sleeves and body, but before colorwork yoke.

3.75mm needles for the collar ribbing, knit to approximately 2” and then set up for tubular bind off.

Finished sweater measurements:

41” chest, 14” underarm to hem, 18” underarm to sleeve cuff, 10” yoke depth.

Did not finish on/by Christmas because I ran out of light beige (I did not follow any of the stated color options) and reisisted the urge to go to the shop to retrieve another ball of yarn.
