the oak pullover by quince and co

Monday, November 05, 2018

I started Oak back in July and buzzed right through it, all except for seaming in that cute little pocket.  And finally a couple of weeks ago I seamed in the pocket.  And yesterday, I wore Oak!  
This is the first sweater I made out of Plain & Simple, and it won't be the last.  In fact, I would like another Oak maybe in a darker color.  It's a great knit and an even better wear.  
I must admit, however, I do have a few things I would do differently if I would ever make this again.  Things that I would tailor to my body type.
The first is the length.  I guess I must be a little longer waisted then the model.  So... if I made this again I would add a couple of inches to the body.  Don't know why I didn't check that as I went... I usually do.
The second thing I would do would be to add more length from the underarm to the shoulder.  I would prefer it to be a bit roomier through the arm since this is a dropped shoulder.
The only modification I did make was to add a couple of inches to the length of the arms.
