No "second sleeve syndrome" here!


The tree jacket is coming along quite nicely. I'm sure she will be done in the next few days. The pattern was working up perfectly in a medium (even though it seems I could have safely made the small?!?!) until I hit the sleeves. They are very wide at 70 stitches and the decreases seem few and far between. I thought about ripping back and adding a lot more decreases but when I tried it on, I kind of liked the wide slouchiness. This sweater will definitely be more of a "casual and comfy" style than the one on the Zephyr Style site but I really like it!

great color! I agree, the sleeves do seem a bit wide to me. If I made another one I'd make the sleeves decrease more rapidly.

What a beautiful color! I too chose to make my tree jacket in a vivid color to brighten my fall wardrobe up a bit! I can't wait to see yours when it's finished--looks lovely so far!
