Notes

Ton of short rows and ends to weave in. I somehow ended up with one extra stitch on the front. I am choosing to ignore it because it still appears symmetrical. It should speed up now that I’ve started knitting in the round. The body was looking a little too wide. At some point I started doing the A-line increases at a slower rate.

After almost finishing the first sleeve, I decided it was too wide for me. It was pretty close to the schematic but I wanted a narrower fit. So I took it back to about an inch from the armpit. I think decreased every six rows, seven times, then every four rows until it was long enough. I ended with 58 st for the bottom of the sleeves. The sleeves look almost a bit short, but I’m going to see what length I get from blocking. If they still see, short, I can add some more rows after that.
