whew! this one was quick! …like I didn’t even have time to move the project from my queue before I finished!

my stitch gauge was a bit tighter (21 st/4 inches) so I knit the 34 hoping for a 32 - it came out great. row gauge was 7 rows/in. I added about 1/2” to the skirt and made the armholes about 1/2” shorter. decided I was OK to have the bust darts be “off” - the short one is dead on the center of my boobs but I think is ok (the last photo shows what I mean…the front of the sweater isn’t really wide enough for me to move it to the outside - it would be under my arm!). the longer one curves nicely to the inside, though.

I did the single crochet as suggested. about 2 stitches for every 3 rows on the vertical edges and 3 stitches for every 4 stitches on the horizontal edges.

love the yarn - can’t wait to use it again! and it blocks beautifully. last photo shows unblocked - nice, but so much better after a good soak and dry!
