NOTES

  • Garment is worn with buttons in back. It is worked from the chest up for solid part, then chest down for lace part. Upper front and back pieces are first worked separately, then joined at underarms for body.
  • When working in linen stitch, be sure to check stitch count every couple of rows as it is easy to lose track. Also, place a marker on right side for easier identification.
  • When working in fans or V-stitches, work in chain-space unless otherwise stated.
  • Skip row-ending slip stitches at beginning of next row.
