Francis Revisited Revisited

I made my mom her own Francis for Christmas. 

Yarn: Knitpicks Andean Silk 8 skeins
Color: Bluebell (discontinued)
Needles: Size 9 - addi clicks
Pattern: Duh

Notes: I knit it in Medium, but my gauge was 14 sts over 4 inches so it was a bit more snug than the standard medium. I also added four stitches to the underarms to avoid holes (a trick I’ve learned since making the original FR) I then picked up 3 each side, and added an extra decrease to take care of it.
I also knit the sleeves with a bit less flare. I knit to the 7.25" increase round, knit two rounds (3Xs) then knit even for 5 rounds (so 7 rounds total after first increase). Then I knit the seed stitch.
