Notes

Due to gauge achieved with 10mm needles I’m making another size S instead of going for the XS as originally planned. It’s a little smaller than the previous one.
I didn’t want for it to be too tight and with this light yarn and slightly smaller gauge I think I hit the right size.

Used 8mm for the neck, cuffs and ribbed bottom edge.

I originally wanted to be a pixelated sweater but It didn’t go well with the tartan pants I wanted to pair it with (picture) .
In the end I chose some classic stripe for the touch of color.

I ended up with very few grey yarn. I suggest to buy at least 6 balls if you are making an S with just one color
