Notes

Measurements:

  • Bust: 33”
  • Waist: 29”
  • Length: 21.5”
  • Length to Underarm: 14”
  • Sleeve Length: 15”
  • Upper Arm Circumference: 11”
  • Lower Arm Circumference: 7.5”

I used a size 6 needle for the body and a size 5 needle for the ribbing.

My gauge was much bigger than the pattern’s; I was getting 4 stitches to an inch.

Raglan Shaping: I increased every other round (per the pattern instructions) until I had 60 stitches and 40 stitches, but my armhole was only 6” deep, so I knit 3 rounds, worked an increase round, and knit 4 more rounds before dividing the body and sleeves when my armhole measured 7.5”. After the underarm cast on, I had 64 stitches each for the front and back for a 33” bust.

Waist Decreases: I started waist decreases 2” from the underarm. I put stitch markers between the two underarm cast on stitches on each side and ssk, k1, sm, k1, k2tog every inch 5 times - 54 stitches each for the front and back for a 29” waist.

Hip Increases: I worked even without shaping for 1” before I started hip increases. I worked the hip increases (k1fb, k1, sm, k1, k1fb) the same as the waist decreases: every inch 5 times back up to 64 stitches each for the front and back. I worked even until the body measured 19.75” then k1, p1 rib for 1.75”.

Sleeves: After picking up the 2 cast on stitches I had 44 stitches for each sleeve.
-decrease at 2.5” - 42 stitches

-decrease at 5” - 38 stitches
-decrease at 6.5” - 36 stitches
