I have been knitting this pattern:
At first I wasn’t sure about the colors I chose
But once I got past the colorwork section, I started to really love it. I finished the body last night and tried it on before working the sleeves. Ugh. The neck opening was too small!!!
Not the fit I was going for or what the pattern says.
I guess I should have looked more closely at the neck circumference rather than the waist circumference and realized that the 4” of positive ease was essential.
So…..I have made the very difficult decision to unravel and start over. Maybe I’ll play with the colorwork section and use only the lighter color, idk yet. What I do know is this: we all make mistakes, but the important part is recognizing where you’ve made them and taking steps to fix them.
