Easter weekend progress


Not much knitting happened this weekend, but I did manage to get to the bottom of my SC. I'm pretty happy with it, but I'm wondering about the bunchiness under the bust line. I'm hoping that when I put the sleeves on that part of the sweater will pull up a bit. Sleeves are next, then I need to find the right sized needle for the cowl. How long a needle have you been using? I'm worried my 29" one will stretch it out too much.

I used a 24 inches circ. needle for the neckline.

Don't worry, the bust line will pull up a little when you do the collar... but I also have some looneness around my sleeves too...

I cannot wait to see your SC done! :)

I always considered the looseness a feature of the pattern, it makes it look a bit retro, in my opinion. I think when you do a raglan, you will get some of that under the sleeves, unless you work up a version in a couple sizes too small.
