Magnum Jacket Crochet

A few mistakes in this pattern.
The Meduim number of stitches on the first row.
There are different amount of rows on the fronts and back.
I didn’t realize it was SUPER bulky. So it ended up smaller (especially the arm opening since I didn’t read the back directions and that there were suppose to be more rows). So I added some to the bottom and front. I figured since it was going in all directions, this would just add to it.
I started the sleeve and then wanted to see if I could make it longer and wider with front rows, so I took it out. Since it’s smaller and I want a “almost no seam” sweater, I’m going to work the sleeves onto the sweater and work down. Since my arm openings are so small (but not too tight, thankfully) I won’t need to decrease, but maybe at the last row for a tighter “cuff”.
This could take a weekend to make, like they say, if you sit and crochet it. I didn’t crochet as much as I usually do and I started it late Saturday, so it’s taking longer.
