Notes

My first knitted sweater for our son, Liam! I am really proud of myself and even more proud that it fits.

I found errata that is not reported on the originating website so if you give this pattern it a try, be sure to change the number of stitches you begin knitting in row 1 of step 4 when you begin the shoulders and collar so that you go all the way around the sweater before turning your work instead of just halfway. (Don’t ask how I figured that out. Just know that spending 2 hours precariously ripping back rows when I felt like something was off was not something I ever want to do again.)

I love how it turned out!
