THIS! – other than a little too much in the upper arm, its pretty good, even if I do say so myself. From the shrug with neck opening, picked up stitches around for the body. All on #10 needles, Bulky Acrylic yarn, 100grams/164 yards per skein. 5.5 skeins for the entire thing, 3 of them for the sleeves and upper body. main body 2.5 skeins. Switched to #9 needles for 3 inches for the waist – such as it is – then back to the #10s. At 21” long, it just touched my hips, and then switched to #10.5 needles for another 3 inches, then divided for the tails – 3” for the front, 5” for the back. Sweater has not been blocked, and there is not a seam in sight!
