It's a Great Fit


Hey, kaleidoscopic. Looks like we share the same taste in yarn and color choices. I too, opted for the suggested Berroco in Marron. We had a debate at my LYS on what this color is exactly. I've been on a brown kick lately and thought this different shade of brown would be a good transition to other colors but everyone just tells me "it's brown." Such is life. I didn't do a gauge but the fit is perfect. I knitted a few extra rows on the collar for a turtleneck fit and a few extra to make the sleeves a bit longer. I plan to post a modeled picture after I wash and block it. Knit On - KnitnRide

Erica: I always go back to my Big Book of Knitting for finishing techniques. I used a combination of sts with invisible stitch on the shoulders and mattress going down the sleeves.
