Big yellow NeckDown Pullover for women (Pure & Simple)
I did it
I finished it
largest size in pattern
knit on size 10.5 and 8 instead of (6 and 9 as the pattern dictates)
I also knit the arms first, and although I decreased at a rate of every 4th round instead of every 3rd, and the arms still came out short, and I had to frog back to a safety line, and knit 2 more inches, with 2 more decreases in it (now the end of the sleeves is a little snug around my hands, but not around my wrists)
the body was supposed to stop at 24" I stopped mine at 26.5" before I did the curled edge
I also did 9 rows at each edge, not just 6, and I bound off with the needle size I knit the rest with
it (Obviously) fits, even ME
the woman at the Dentists office said "My Goodness, that is a BIG sweater" I told her "I am a BIG woman, I need it"
Now I M done, and I M SO proud
