I actually have progress you can see on my Chloe sweater. The collar is done!
I elected to knit the collar before the sleeves. I did the three-needle bind-off for the shoulder seams and picked up the stitches around the neck. It’s a very deep collar and you increase two stitches at the center back of it every other row, so it was a lot of knitting. I finished it last night.
Then I picked up stitches along one side for a sleeve.
I am making my sleeves bigger than the pattern directs. As written, the sleeves are rather tight-fitting, but for me, that defeats the purpose of a big loose comfy sweater. So my sleeves will be nice and loose. I am knitting mine in stockinette stitch instead of reverse stockinette stitch as directed. I am not crazy about how reverse stockinette looks in this yarn.
As you can see, this project is no longer very portable!
