This pullover was at the top of my knitting queue for a long time (like over a year) and I had the yarns stashed for it for almost as long before I finally decided to cast on for it. Nomen est omen and the pullover faced a literal stasis for a while before I finally found the flow during my trip to Amsterdam. After that the knitting went more smoothly and it didn't take much longer before the whole thing was finished.
I used 2.5 mm needles for the ribbing and then changed to 3.0 mm for the stockinette stitch. There's a third needle size suggested for the charted sections (3.5 mm) and I knitted the first sleeve according to these instructions. However I thought the pattern became quite loose with that needle size and you could see the difference between the gauges for the fair-isle and the stockinette; so for the other charted parts I just continued with the 3.0 mm needles making sure I didn't pull the floats too tight. Drops Baby Merino is quite stretchy so I think it worked out fine although I usually like to change for slightly bigger needles for fair-isle sections.
I'm so in love with everything about this pullover. I really like the minimalist and graphic feel of it and how it manages to be at the same time both very modern and traditionally Scandinavian. And I loved how my colleague asked me where I bought it instead of did I make it myself :)
