Notes

I’m throwing this pattern out the window, but using the sheer sleeves and stranded motif.

  1. Semi-fitted, aim 38”-39”, 2” positive ease.
  2. Waist shaping
  3. In the round
  4. Set-in sleeves on body
  5. Picked-up top-down short row sleeves

Calculations:

2.5mm instead of 2.25 for garter (seems to tight for Wharf)

Flat swatch = 28 sts x 28 rows

Body should be 36-38 of Wharf.

Chart is 135 sts.

CO 270 sts, do whole chart 2X omitting last column, replacing first column with 1 black seam st and adding 1 black seam st = 2 black seam sts at all times to hide jog). Get rid of the black seam sts after underarm.

Use 2-row M1 increase so stitches aren’t too tight at seams.

6 rows garter in black, 2.5mm

Waist shaping/set-in sleeve should be like Trinity for length (2cm shorter to start) and Wharf for width:

(Trinity = decreases over 25 rows, knit 17, inc over 29 rows = 10.14 in total
Wharf = Dec/Inc 10 sts = 1.42 in)

Knit to 8 cm, dec 1 st at each end of next and 4 foll 6th rows. Work 17 rows. Inc 1 st of next and 4 foll 8th rows, continue until 41 cm, RS facing.
