Notes

Casting on 132 stitches for 34” waist. By my calculations, lacey section should be 38”.

Tubular cast on w/ Blossom Heather on US 4 needles:
Cast on 66 stitches with provisional crochet cast on, p1 row, k1 row, picked up 132 stitches in k1 p1 rib, then changed to US 2 needles.

Did not change needles like in pattern. Did ribbing until piece measured 11”, ended on RS row.

(One side, 45g of Blossom Heather)

Switched to US 3 needles and Ladybug Love. Did one row in k1 p1 rib, increased one stitch each end (134 stitches). Started lace stitch.

Lace gauge hard to determine since it’s wavy. Approx 1 3/8” per 12 stitch repeat (measured straight across) = 8.7 stitches per inch, unstretched.

Followed pattern directions until just before forming point. Instead of repeating first 3 pattern rows and decreasing 1 st at both ends of each row, did 4 pattern rows and decreased 1 st at both ends of each row. Total 24 stitches decreased (110 stitches).

Did not shape point. Instead continued in lace pattern until piece is 19.5” long. Then did neck and shoulder shaping as in Classic Jersey pattern.

Repeated for back except started back neck and shoulder shaping at 21”.

Sleeves: using Blossom Heather and Classic Jersey pattern. Did tubular cast on with US 4, switched to US 2 for ribbing. Switched to US 3 for stockinette stitch.
