4.5 skeins = 616.5 yards (563.7 meters), 225 grams


Pattern calls for two yarns to be held double in certain sections, however I only used one yarn throughout.

I used size 2 DPNs (2.75mm) for the yoke instead of the 3mm noted in the pattern; I changed to a size 3 DPNs (3.25mm) after the first 8 rounds of twisted rib of the yoke.

I added right and left leaning decreases on the back to draw in the waist a bit.

I ended up having a few more stitches on the front section than on the back after dividing for the sleeves. I kept going and figured the extra stitches would help with the bust section.

The fit turned out really nice and the yarn feels wonderful! I’m looking forward to wearing this in warmer weather.
