Another Olympic Tubey
Let's see, a few details:
I used the yarn called for in the pattern (bought it 30 percent off at a Superbowl sale with a gift certificate -- it doesn't get much better than that), and although I haven't had a chance to see how it wears, I'm very happy with it for now.
I shortened the body by about 1.5 inches over what was called for. I also cast on 16 fewer stitches for the body tube than the pattern called for. If I were to do it over I wouldn't decrease the number of stitches but I'd knit the body with a smaller needle.
I think the cross-back measurement is the key to getting this sweater to fit you well. Too long or too short causes really big problems.
There are lots more details and a few more photos on my blog. Thanks for letting me be a part of this knitalong! I'm looking forward to seeing many more Tubeys here.
