Notes

ok- so this will be my second Rhinebeck sweater. My friend Liz and I plan to twin on Sunday and this is the sweater we plan to make. It wont be matching colors but that doesn’t matter.

July 27, 2019

Yarn for this has been dyed. I plan to make the body in Midnight but I need to figure out what color I want to do the colorwork in. I can figure that out while everything dries.

PROJECT NOTES

  • I have a 40” Bust

  • The pattern suggest 6” of positive ease but I want this have a more fitted look to it. So I plan to make the Size S.

  • My upper arm is a bit larger so I will CO underarm stitches for a size M1. I also place an additional stitch marker in the center under the sleeve so I can easily make decreases along the side seams of the body.

  • At 1.5” from under arm CO I decreased by two stitches on each side to bring the stitch count back the number required for the size S.

  • At 4” from under arm CO I did another 4 st decrease at side seams. Worked 10 rows then decreased, another 6 rows and then decreased again.

  • Worked body until it was 8.5” from under arm CO them worked the bottom ribbing.

  • Since I added two stitches to the under arm my sleeve count is 62 sts. Left it like that and worked the sleeve decreases.

  • Did 7 decreases on the sleeve and worked until it was 12 1/4” from under arm.
