Such a fun and easy little pattern!

I made a few mods in order to make the sweater a smidge bigger. I omitted the shaping and cast on a couple extra sts for the back and sides then knit straight. I extended the yoke to 4” before binding off. Because I did a longer yoke I was able to decrease every right side row on the sleeve cap until the right number of sts remained.

I was using yarn leftover from an upcoming design project for this piece so I did the button bands first because I thought I might run out of yarn. I ended up having to unravel my swatch to finish the collar!

I brought this sweater with me to California and had to sew on buttons in the car on my way to see my friend. But it was totally worth it!
