Notes

Time record breaker. Six full days plus two nights. It’s finished! Gorgeous and clever design. As always - “Made by Norah”. Love you, my winter goodie!!!

Got smaller gauge, made size between 45¼ and 48½.

Modifications:

  1. Italian cast on method. Used 4 mm size needle to cast on, ribbing is made with 4,5 mm needle the last picture).
  2. Made body and sleeves flat (seamed).
  3. Made higher back neck by 14 rows (7 cm, 3’). Used short rows method (12th and 13th pictures). Those manipulations made my neck narrower, so my collar is 64 sts only knitted with one size smaller needles (5,5 mm).
  4. Bust darts are made.
  5. Three needle bind-off in underarms.
  6. Crochet chain in the wrong side keeps the neck line in place not allowing collar to stretch and slip down (14th picture).
