Did you realize the yarn you chose and the yarn called for are two VERY different weights? Red hreart is dk (medium) 23 sts to the in. and cascade is bulky (heavy) 13. If you want to use the red heart, you may have to double it ans swatch to get gauge called for.

Yes, I know they are diff. I adjusted the needles. I want it light and airy. Thank you.
I tried it with the heavier yarn and did not like it at all.

When I get further along I'll post a picture here.

I am finding it very slow going due to the fineness of the yarn. I haven't kept count of the rows as the pattern is the same with no more increase beyond the shoulder.
It takes so long to knit a 222 stitch row! How fast would you be able to knit that many stitches?
