Notes

12 of 14 in 2014

Pink is a neutral, right?

I knit a size between the 30.5” and 34”. CO for the 34 and did 2 extra decreases on each piece to get a 32” size. I also added an extra stripe and knit the body about an inch longer than specified.

I knit the tiniest i-cord bind off around the neckline. I picked up all of the stitches around the armholes, then immediately bound off purlwise. The armholes fit much better before adding the trim, but the trim was necessary. Next time I’ll knit the armholes a tiny bit bigger to compensate for this. Right now the bottom hem is raw, but I’m debating adding an i-cord bind off there too to keep it from flipping up.
