Notes

Cast on 240 sits on US4. Pattern calls for doubled yarns at cast on, but used single yarn and just doubled starting in Row 1.

Carrying yarn up each round through single sections to limit weaving in ends.

Will also alternate skeins for single sections to use evenly.

Decided to keep yarn held double for last or shoulder shaping/ neck decreases instead following stripe sequence.

05-17-2018

Completed but felt that it was still too short after blocking. Picking up stitches above garter hem then snipping a stitch to separate from hem (similar to afterthought heel) then will add additional length.

05-18-2018

Decided to include a few increases while adding length to give it a little a-line shaping.

05-29-2018

Added about 4 inches in length and finished with split hem similar to wedewschool version. Absolutely love how it turned out.
