here’s the screenshot for y’all of the report:
here are my pattern notes:
so it’s finished. i finished it yesterday, crocheting the armholes, omitting the ruffles.
and it was SO tight and inelastic because i am a remedial crocheter. so i ripped that back and did 4 rows of the k2p2 ribbing.
because i was too lazy to learn the k2p2 tubular bind off, on the last row before binding off, i added 1 stitch between the k stitches, making it k3p2 for that row, and bound off with a 5.0mm needle. i bound off the neckline and the armholes with that too, without adding the extra stitch.
it’s fine. i don’t love it, mostly because of the yarn. and now that i’m actually wearing the alpaca with a spaghetti strap tank underneath it i find it ITCHY. so maybe it’s an autumn vest before it gets cold cold? eh…
