Frogged the body once because my tension working in the round was different from the swatched knitted back and forth.
The second time around tension was perfect 14stsx 20 rows in 10x10cm with 6mm needle. i just needed to apply a little more tension.

Frogged one sleeve because it was my first time working with the magic loop and it came out a little weird. The second time I decided to work both sleeves on the same circular needle and I’m actually finding it easier.

Love the color, the softness and the elasticity of this of this yarn!

I had some doubts on where to leave the working yarn when the instructions tell you to stop working and move the needles around to put the underarm sts on hold (both on sleeves and body). I decided to work 3 sts more on the body leaving the working yarn ready to be picked up when joining sleeves and body. To do so i needed to work the sleeves with the second skein, which I divided into two balls.

On the sleeves I decided to knit 3 sts less because i thought the grafting would even out the number of rows. Still don’t know if i did good. slightly_smiling_face

After joining I continued working with the first skein and I was able to actually finished the yoke with the same yarn I worked the body.

The only change I made to the pattern was to make the sleeves 2cm longer.
The yoke is 40 rounds

To graft the underarm sts I used this very nice technique:

After blocking the Eco+ became fuller without loosing it’s form. The sweater is light and cropped so I don’t think its own weight will be influent in loosing the shape while wearing it.
Yarn is kinda raw to the touch but it doesn’t irritate my skin. Color is perfect.
