I really dropped the ball on moving my Ravelry posts over to my website. I’m determined to get it done this week. I completed this project in February 2020. There’s not much to note about the project. I followed the pattern for the body without any alterations. When I got to the sleeves, I made a mistake and didn’t pick up enough stitches under the armpit (4 to be exact). I’ve stopped at 8 repeats instead of 10. I have the recommended number of stitches, 74. Then I complete 34 rows for the cuff. The pattern calls for arms way too long. If I had picked up the correct number of stitches, I would have stopped when I had 78 stitches remaining. This is so far my most favorite sweater I’ve knitted. I wear it constantly in the winter.
