I followed Andrea’s excellent Pullover Hack instructions, with two big modifications:

  1. my colorwork gauge was the same as my plain stockinette stitch, so I added ~10 rows after the colorwork chart before splitting the sleeves (in hindsight, I maybe could’ve worked the colorwork chart for the larger sizes, but it was fine).

  2. I cast on for the size 34, then added 8 extra stitches in the final increase round to end up with something between the 1st two sizes (my bust is ~ 33.5”).

Two little mods:

  1. worked a round of knitting and then bound off knit-wise for both the body and the sleeves.
  2. only worked about 1-1/2” of ribbing on the sleeves (I did not plan to turn the cuffs up).

In all - VERY pleased with the whole project - the yarn is lovely to knit with, the pattern was a lot of fun, and the FO fits beautifully! (also, I have enough yarn left to knit a hat!)
