Notes

5-25-20 - blocking!

5-16-20 - swatched last night and blocked. measured this morning and woohoo! perfect on the first try! and wow! the yarn looks amazing, especially in the seed stitch.

5-15-20 - yarn arrived. Berroco 123 DropShip FTW. I ordered Tuesday morning from Plum Tree and USPS delivered the yarn on Friday. excited to start!

Followed the pattern as written (with a regular long-tail cast-on) EXCEPT

  1. worked all the bind-off edges knit-wise (to avoid the potential of a wavy edge)
  2. worked short sleeves - approx 2” before the ribbing instead of 5” Body - worked 6 repeats of the seed stitch stripe before ribbing (16 rounds). Sleeves - worked 1 repeat of seed stitch stripe before ribbing (8 rounds).

Bust ~36”
Body Length ~ 12.5”
Sleeve Length ~ 3”
