Used tubular cast-on

Just feels too tight of a knit. Maybe too bulky of a yarn for this needle? Going to rip back to ribbing and either switch to another pattern or try with larger needle.

Ripped back to the ribb…
Sleeves are DEFINITELY too long. :\ Otherwise, love this pattern!
This was a “mystery” yarn that was given by a friend who had it given to her. No labels at all and I just guessed it was sport weight by the gauge.
Striping/color blocking was somewhat guesstimate, as was increasing/decreasing, sleeve diameter and length.
I love the fit of the body but right now I’m meh on the hood & collar. It feels like it’s just going to slide off of my shoulders.
Given the fit now and my personal preferences, I’m not doing a button band or buttons. I’m going to pick up a zipper and probably just sew it directly to the edge. (I may need to knit on a very small band to just have enough non-lace to attach the zipper.
Renamed because I think it looks like the Pokémon.
