Getting into some decision-making
I'm going to aim for a 41 inch around sweater, so that comes to 262.4 stitches, which I'm going to round down to 260. Subtracting 26 stitches (10% of key), brings me to 234 stitches, which is not divisible by 4 for a K2P2 rib, so rounding to 236. I'll deal with what intervals of increasing get me back to the key number by the bust later.
Skein 1 -- Casting on 236 stitches on size zeros with markers at the start and half-way points. K2 P2 rib, making sure cast on is not twisted. Next decision point -- how deep to make the rib? I'm going for at least pinky depth, which is about 2 inches, and then see if I want it thicker.
Okay, that's enough to get started with for now. We'll see how far skein one goes and how speedy a knit this is with more stitches than usual.
Pictures added in the morning, maybe.
