On how to spend my time, I pondered away an hour.
And having thus spent all my time, I pondered on where went the hour.

ERRATA coming June 11, 2019 An error has been discovered. Round 6 should read:

Ponder is a basic top down crochet tee/sweater featuring not so basic stitches. The neck and sleeve openings are emphasized by working stitches in the 3rd loop. Back loop only stitches create subtle lines around the yoke. Toss in fake seam lines and extended stitches to complete the body.

The stitches go beyond the beginner level, but are approachable by those who are ready to learn new variations of beginner stitch work.

Top down construction means that you can try on as you work and customize where needed. It is easy to alter the bust size and hem line by following the “Pause & Ponder” hints provided.

NOTE: additional yardage is required to significantly increase bust or lengthen sleeves or body.
