Notes

Chose 50.5” bust size due to 8” positive ease. Should be light and comfy with good drape.

Cared on the Worsted weight version, while on vacation since I had this yarn packed for a different project. Love this blue colorway and excited to finally use it!

BO hem and cuffs in pattern (k,p) gave me enough stretch while looking tidy.

Decided to change neckline. Worked in pattern for 2” and then did simple BO (all k) so it would lay flat. No issues with it being too tight.

I probably could have went down a size, but I like the oversized look. Will be easy to layer/wear with leggings in the fall.
