miyayo memo

I got almost right gauge. 17 sts x 23 rows
Co 122sts Provisional Cast-on with waste yarn

●Made the length of body longer (+4rows), for my height is above average, 170cm, as well as that of the sleeve (+12rows).
●Found the width of the sleeve small. Undid and added 2 more cable patterns. Co54+12=66sts
●Bigger neckline (less rows) with 5rows 2x2rib and 4rows st st and then Elastic Bind Off purlwise, using a smaller needle, 4.0mm/jp6.

●ゲージ9号針でほぼOK.
●身頃減目前まで4目増やす(84目)(4つ目の模様10目まで)袖も増目前まで12目増やす。
●うげげ~悪い予感どおり、袖が小さい。ので、ケーブル3を5に増やして再チャレンジ。
●首まわりは広くとる。2目ゴム編み5段、メリヤス4段で裏からエラスティックバインドオフ。
-ネック、裾、袖のゴム編みは6号針。パターンより目数を増やして、やや余裕を持った寸法をとりました。
