Notes

I love this sweater, it is my new favorite thing to throw on anytime I am cold. It is incredibly easy to wear.

I modified both the cowl neck and the sleeves. For the sleeves, I did one fewer decrease so the slipped stitch pattern ended up in one I find favorable. I also started the ribbing at 13” because I have short arms and like bracelet-length sleeves. For the cowl, I knit the first 1” in the same needle as the rest of the sweater. Then I knit 4” up 1 needle size, 4” more in the next size up, and then the last inch and cast-on up 1 more size. It helps make looser and droopier fabric and I like how it came out a lot.
