Notes

This is heavily modified version of the pattern. My yarn was thinner than in the pattern so I calculated all the stitch counts again. Also I knitted the hem in the round to the armholes. I didn’t decease as much as in the pattern for the armholes and I widened the neckline. For the sleeves I picked up stitches from the armholes and knitted the sleeves in the round top down.
