The sweater is knit in 2x2 rib, and it's super stretchy. It's really warm and comfortable!
Pattern: Mommy Snug by Kate Gilbert
Size: 20.5" bust circumference, to fit 39.5" bust
Yarn: Cascade 220 Heathers, color 8011 (an oatmeal grey), 6.5 skeins
Started/Completed: October 2017/April 2018
Modifications: I added a 5th button to each of the side plackets, which made the plackets taller (but I kept the number of rows in the sweater below the short-row belly shaping the same as called for in the pattern). I worked a second set of belly short rows - in hindsight, this really wasn't necessary and the short rows are a little high on my anyway, but the sweater fits fine and is comfortable. I knitted the sleeves in the round (from the end of the button plackets) and lengthened them significantly. Instead of working a hemmed neck edging, I followed a project I saw on Ravelry and worked an i-cord neck edging.
