Notes

5-31-13 - added a finished photo. love how it fits and that the last bit of increases endsjust before the biggest part of my bust.

5-27-13 - and done! (well, drying). the rest of the knitting went fine - decided I didn’t need to add bust darts - so just followed the pattern (with adjustments described below). LOVE the 3 needle bindoff under the arms (especially because I HATE the kitchener stitch). Also, did Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bindoff around the neck.

5-2-13 - pulled it back out again…spring just isn’t coming! finished the body increases and started the first sleeve.

4-21-13 - set aside for more spring-like knits; through half of the body increases. loving the yarn and the pattern.

3-26-13 - whew! just completed calculations for my planned modifications (see below). hoping to cast on later today!!

3-23-13 - not planning to cast on til next week, but wanted a place to share some of my classwork (today, I added my personal croquis drawings!)
____________
gauge on size 4 needle = 22x34
modifications:

  1. pattern row gauge = 30; adjusted # rows for body, yoke and sleeves to add in rows since my row gauge is 34
  2. moved waist shaping down about 2.5”
  3. added bust darts (nope! didn’t need them)
  4. narrower sleeve cuff - caston 46 stitches = 3 more increases to end up with 62 stitches per the pattern
