Not a bad fit for my first sweater. I just wished this pattern had a sizing for a more fitted look. The arms I felt looked a little too baggy.

That looks awesome! Congratulations! I just finished all my pieces so my next step is putting it all together.

This looks great! I agree with you about the sleeves being wide. I'm going to do fewer increases on my next one and see if that makes a difference. I'll have to adjust the decreases too, I guess, or my stitch count will be way off. Hmmmm...I'll have to think more about this. In any event, good job!

Please let me know if you'd like any help with adjusting the sleeve sizing.
