My finished product for the KAL is blocked and I am exceptionally happy with the results. I chose the boat-neck because this is a Christmas present, and I do not know the neck size for the recipient, but do know other measurements. The closest place to get the Spud and Chloe yarn is an hour drive away, and I did not know about the place until after I was nearly finished with this knit-along project, so I made this pullover with Cascade 220. Now I am anxious to start another project using the Spud and Chloe sweater yarn. The recipient is 6', slender, and the pullover was created to have a 6" peplum starting at the waist and the sleeves will end at the elbow. As a result, it appears here that the peplum begins below the waist and the sleeves are 3/4 in length. I am only 5'5"! Thank you for the boat-neck, Wendy. It worked out very nicely. I used the 1" ribbing on the boat-neck, and made the torso semi-fitted.
