What needles did you use? US 5 / 3.75 mm / UK 9

What materials did you use? I used smaller needles this time to achieve a more shapely sweater. Around the bust, I switched to larger needles.

What are you most proud of? This is my first attempt to customize a sweater for my body. I wanted the sweater to be more snug around the waist and the arms. Also, I thought the neckline would be cuter if I only worked 15 rows of the raglans sleeves. The 3/4 in sleeves make this a year round sweater, allowing me to wear this during the day, without rolling up my sleeves (literally) when I'm immersed in housework or crafting!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Learning to create custom, more shapelier sweaters all begins with an adventurous spirit!

Very clever. Fitted clothing is more flattering I think. Helpful tip. Thank you!

You are welcome - I don't know if I mentioned, I also used smaller needles for the arms too - I don't like baggy arms on a fitted sweater!
