What are you most proud of? I like extra-long sleeves, and a lower bottom edge. I was very pleased with the results of my alterations to the pattern to accommodate these. :)

Thank you. Also what was your cast on number?

I followed the size 36 instructions (the same instructions used on the demonstration garment in the class) as close as possible as far as stitch counts. The adjustments I made were only in length: I lengthened the sleeves, the bust-to-waist, and waist-to-ribbing.

Do you remember how wide your button bands was- did you do the 1 inch?- That looks perfect

Sorry for the delay in responding. I kept checking Craftsy when I was nowhere near my sweater. Yes, this is a 1-inch button band.

I just love your sweater. It fits perfectly and you've convinced me to use Fisherman's Wool. The stitch definition is great. It looks like you made it slightly longer than what the pattern called for. I like it like that.

Yes, I spent a lot of time before casting on calculating the fit the way I wanted it to be. I find that I prefer sweaters that hit me at the hips or high hips rather than the waist, so I made sure to lower the bottom edge. I also lengthen the sleeves considerably to accommodate my long arms and my preference for cuffs that come past my wrist.
