Tealeaf Sweater KAL

I eliminated the pockets, as I never use pockets in hand knit sweaters. I also worked ahead of the videos, as I am an experienced sweater knitter and have other sweaters I wanted to get done! I was hoping this would be perfect for my fall mountain trip, and it was (except it was 82F in the mountains).

Q&A with iechris29609

mamayaya569477 asked:
Beautiful! When did you finish? Also, the fit is perfect. Did you use one of the standard size or did you make any adjustments.
iechris29609 answered:
I finished my sweater this past weekend, October 8th. I used the standard size 3 and didn't make any changes to the pattern except eliminating the pockets and knitting the sleeves to their final length after the sweater was completely finished and blocked. I typically knit size 38-40 or size Medium sweaters for myself and this sweater is very oversized but fits nicely. I only used 6 skeins of the yarn (I had been worried about yarn usage back during the body knitting).
