Notes

Deadline is 15th of May.
I used test-version after 6.

CO with Madelinetosh tosh DK, but it may run out…….
Frogged it after thought for a while, restarted with tosh sports….
It was my first experience to attach a zipper. So excited.
I all did it!
Thank you for letting me test your new stunning pattern, Hanna! :)

Mods;

  • Instead shortened body 2cm, added 2cm to armhole depth. (The total length is according to the pattern and changed my sleeves’ increase sequence a little bit.)
  • When separated body and sleeves, sleeves are reduced 4 sts. (total 55→51 sts.)
  • When worked sleeves, added each 1 extra st between underarm and sleeve sts. (total 58→56 sts.) Then, worked immediately first dec rnd to close up the holes at the underarm in next round. (total 56→54 sts)
  • Worked sleeve shaping every 12 rounds 8 times in total instead of every 10 rounds.
  • Sewed a zipper with a sewing machine.

Needles; JPN 8, 7 ,6 and 5 (4.5/4.2/3.9/3.5mm)

Gauge; 21.5sts and 27.5rows ( 4” in St st with JPN 6 knitting needles, slightly tighter st and row gauge)
