I missed out on having this be my 20th sweater of 2009 by a week.
Darn. But I could have had it done if I hadn’t decided to do a lot of small projects instead. So now it will be the first sweater of 2010.
More on my Ravelry project page.
The lace portion of the body is size S, but then I increased a bit for the bust, then decreased down to size S for the shoulders. It could still be a bit smaller in the shoulders, as it grew a little bit when I wet-blocked it.
I made the body much longer than indicated in the pattern – 10″ of lace, and 4″ from the lace to the underarm.
For the sleeves, I picked up stitches around the armholes and knit the sleeves downward, knitting 3.5″ of the lace pattern at the cuffs. The pattern has 3.5″ of stockinette at the cuff, with another 3.5″ of lace above that. I didn’t think I’d like the way that looked.
