Needles & yarn
US 6 - 4.0 mm
US 8 - 5.0 mm
18 stitches and 26 rows = 4 inches
1 skein = 219.0 yards (200.3 meters), 100 grams

Deep Blue with Silver or Bronze letter 
I used size 8 needles and adjusted my circumference size based on my gauge. I used length measurements for the standard size.

Chad is 41” around with a more narrow waist, so I cast on for 41” and gradually increase an in on each side to 43” 
I’d normally allow more than 2” ease but he prefers a close fit.

Chest - 41” 
Taper, slim fit - at chest - 43”, hip - 41” 
Gauge 4.5sts/in, 6.5rows/in

Cast on for 41” at waist, in the round 
Increase over body to 43” at arm divide

Knit front and back separately 
3 needle bond off for shoulders

Pick up for sleeves - 2/3 ratio 
Back and forth for underarm gusset until it fits perfectly into the 3.25” space, after right side row 
then in the round for decreases to cuff
