Notes

gauge swatch relaxed just a touch (25st/4” to 24st/4”, while pattern called for 26). I’m knitting a 38” bust (to account for that difference; I’m closer to 40) and increasing to 50” hip.

increased number of rows of twisted ribbing on the top, and then an extra bit of gray before starting the color.

did a bit of extra research on jogged stitches - can’t believe I haven’t tried this technique before!

Increased a few extra times before dividing off for the arms, for extra space on the fronts and arms (the final time, I didn’t increase on the back because I was happy with that width).

CO a few stitches under the arm even tho this size didn’t call for it.

more mods to come…
