So I made another sweater this weekend!
Just like the one a few weeks back but this time using 3 strands not 4. The sleeve shaping works a treat and I made a sime adjustment and collected 40 stitches along the front and back and decreased 5 at each end over alternate rows to get back to 30 stitches. This is a comfortable underarm fit.
I neglected the increase for the bust just to see if it was necessary and it doesn’t seem it is for a size 10-12 like me.
I should have made it longer and went back and made 6 more rows hence you can see a line across the front. But I don’t mind any quirky stitch work in a grey sweater. It’s fine.
So the pattern is in good order. Just ensure your length is as desired before casting off.
My thinking is for a larger fit – add 2 stitches (per size) to original cast on for sleeves. And pick up 2 extra stitches across the front and back. Perhaps retain the bust increases if your bust will pull the fabric. Arm and body length is adjustable. It is a close fit sweater so add more stitches at arm or body for a looser fit.
