Notes

Swatched on 9s and 10s - couldn’t get stitch/row gauge with either. Went with the 9s - slightly tighter stitch and slightly looser row gauges. Worked raglan shaping rounds EOR (added 3 rounds). Bound off using Grandma Hiya’s Stretchy Bind-off. For the neck, I decreased to 78 stitches before the ribbing. Also added rows to body to end up ~ 11” in the front (after bindoff). I’m 5’6” and the front edge is about hip level.

A very fun pattern and oh-my-goodness, the yarn is AMAZING.
