I made this sweater as part of Olive Knits Four Day Knitalong. It took me five days.

I loved the pattern and the yarn and the combination!

I made the following modifications:
I worked the sleeves before the body. I worked them flat and seamed them. I adjusted the length to 3/4 without turning up the cuff. When I cast on the extra stitches at the sleeve divide I cast on 4 stitches instead 0 indicated in the pattern for size 36. This also added extra stitches to the body.

I bound off on a wrong side row with a stretchy bind off: K1, slip your knit stitch back on to the left hand needle and knit that stitch and the next stitch together through the back loop.

If I make another one, I might add waist shaping to accommodate the extra stitches I added for the sleeves. We will see what I think after I block it.
