I made this pullover for my daughter who is bigger than me and loves voluminous sweaters. So I picked a size bigger than her normal for the body and then decreased at the yoke to one size smaller. The decreases became a part of the short raglan seams since I made the whole thing with seams.
Here are the numbers:
Picked up 100 sts for back and front with tubular CO,
6 rs in 1x1 ribs,
11 rs of colorwork on bigger needles,
82 rs after colorwork till armholes,
3 sts in every row,
2 sts on each side on every other row 2 times,
1 st on each side on every other row 1 time.
83 sts left.
Picked up 42 sts and knit following instructions till I made 90 rows after the colorwork.
3 sts on every row,
1 st on each side on every other row 3 times.
55 sts. left
I made the yoke exactly as described in the pattern. If I knit this sweater again, I would probably add 3 or more short rows before the beginning of the colorwork.
The yarn that I used for the colorwork is leftover from my Clear Creek Cardigan made for the same daughter earlier this year. I think they would work well together.
I did the seams because I think that a garment works better (and longer) with them, but if you like seamless, you don’t have to make any changes. The pattern is really well written and easy to make.
