All I can say is don’t be fooled by the photo! The sweater pictured must be a size 44 plus! I knitted the S size, had to remove the sleeves having sewn them on as they were ludicrously short. Extended them by another half, sewed the whole thing together then realised the increasing on the sleeves now looked like loose bat wings hanging off the arms as I hadn’t thought to adjust the shape just continued knitting. Now wondering weather I stick with the wedges of excess stitches that I created when I corrected the shape by re sewing the under arm seam OR do I get the sewing machine out to severely stitch the seams to enable trimming inside OR take the whole thing apart and start the sleeves again. It’s all very annoying as I expect better from a paid for pattern!!! On the plus side I used the stated yarn which was lovely to work with.
