I started knitting a long sleeved sweater a few days ago. I've only knit short sleeves before, so this is a new project for me!

Here is the pattern I'm adapting:

https://www.allaboutami.com/the-downtown-cardigan/

The original pattern is for garter stitch, but for the LIFE of me I couldn't get the correct gauge. But with stockinette stitch, I'm a lot closer.

Here's what I've gotten done so far, about 30 rows of the back panel:


The yarn is a wool blend. I scored enough yarn at a thrift store, so the whole thing is only costing me about $15. (Can't beat that!) :-)

Update:

The back panel is finished. I've started the two front panels. They are small enough that I can knit two at a time.

The gauge for the front panels doesn't seem right, though. But I have followed the pattern, so I am trusting the pattern. If it is too narrow, I will learn how to put on a button band. The back panel seems roomy, so maybe it will piece together nicely.

I've finished the two side panels. Here are the back and sides being wet blocked. Now it's on to the sleeves!
