I am using DK yarn. My gauge is 5.5 stitches per inch. Making size XS which will have 262 stitches at the body which should give me 7 inches of ease. Keep your fingers crossed. ;-)

The swatch picture is the most accurate color.

5/27 Joined body and realized the pattern decreased 28 stitches to shape the arms. There is no waist shaping so I now see that top will be too tight at the hips. I am increasing stitches to make the top A-line.

7/12 I was about five rows from starting the ribbing when I discovered one of the faux seams was off by two stitches. I remember losing my stitch marker and when I put it back I clearly put it in the wrong place. I unravelled down a column of six stitches and reknit them in the correct pattern. It took about an 1 1/2 hours. The finished stitches are a bit misshapen but with some stretching, tugging, and then blocking, they should be okay. Happy I tried this method. I saved a lot of time. :-)

7/27 Bound off.

7/29 Finished first sleeve.

7/30 Finished second sleeve.

7/31 Wove in ends, washed, and dried in dryer.
