Notes

This is a modified version of my Opera pattern, just for the fun to have more stripes.

I modified the depth of the neckline and added stripes at the bust area :

  • begun the stripes of the back at “armholes” section of the pattern
  • right side front and left side front : begun the neckline increase at row 8 of the “shoulder short rows” section of the pattern, instead of row 2
  • begun the stripes of the front at “armholes” section of the pattern
  • begun the sleeves stripes 14 rows sooner
  • as this yarn does not contains silk, I had to add more length to the body and the sleeves, because this yarn does not grow.
  • instead of making a Hem, I changed to garter stitches for 12 rows.
