Notes

Shoulder saddles, front yoke, and all or part of sleeves in Slip Check pattern from The Complete Book of Knitting. Back and lower portion of front in stockinette.

I’m getting a gauge of about 4.5 sts = 1” in stockinette, and about 5.6 sts = 1” in slip check, so I’m following the recipe for 5 sts per inch in the Top-Down Sweaters book pattern.

As of 5/26/13 - I’ve knit down from the top to the bottom of the armholes and joined in the round.

7/30/13 - Finished the body… next up, sleeves!

8/18/13 - Completely finished.

Since I will be seeing Dad the weekend before his birthday (Sept.), I’ve decided this will be his birthday present instead.

9/7/13 - Gifted to Dad and he loves it! But Mom and I both agreed it needs to be longer, so I brought it back home to lengthen.

9/13-14/13 - Undid the bindoff and frogged the bottom ribbing. Knit 2” more stockinette, decreased about 6-7% of the stitches and knit ribbing on one size smaller needles (original ribbing was too stretched out). Finished for the second time on 9/14/13.
