Contiguous Mini-Sampler KAL

This pattern is the edited and abbreviated notes from a KAL on Ravelry, for a mini-sweater using the Contiguous method.

The instructions will produce a doll-sized sweater which is asymmetrical.

One half will have a 1-stitch shoulder seam, no back neck shaping, and no front neckline shaping.

The other half will have two shoulder seam stitches, one back neck increase area, and a front neck increase every second row.

The back neck increases will be on the first purl row, and then on knit rows only, for just a few rows.
Increasing every row makes the fabric pucker.

This is done so you can see and assess the difference such shaping makes. It will be lop-sided.

It’s a mini-sampler, doll size, and I don’t think dolly will mind the lack of symmetry.
In fact, as you progress, that could be your personal challenge - how to make it work as an asymmetrical design.

I suggest working in an 8-ply (DK?) on size 4mm needles in a light colour with good stitch definition (no mohair!)
