Notes

Some thoughts after a few wearings:

  • I made the 34” size and added bust darts and I could not be more pleased with the fit. I used the tutorial that begins here, though I had to redo the math to make my bust darts bottom-up.
  • the silky wool is super lovely for this pattern
  • the only modification I’d consider in the future is increasing the circumference of the sleeves slightly. I would most likely just do my ribbing on larger needles and knit everything else as written.

Love to my CESOB ladies for all their help with this sweater. Knitting the smaller size and making bust darts was inspired by Lillysmum (Tara). Once it was finished I stained it with crazy colored powder, and Leigha (Leigha) and Sillyrabbit (Lynnea) helped me get it out! They rule.
