Notes

Mods

  • Knitting the largest size, but changed the break-up of panels for fronts and backs. 2 for each front, 5 for back and 2 cast off for under arm. Back is still a little wide, but much more proportionate now.
  • Grafted shoulder seams
  • I have narrow shoulders and upper body, so I knit the arm holes and sleeve cap to the medium length.
  • Kept knitting sleeve on smaller needle, did not change to larger needle, but added an extra pattern repeat in.
  • Didn’t knit in pattern for new increases on arm - since it was in the underarm, I just knit stocknit as it won’t show.
  • Knit the collar and bottom band separately and sewed them on for better blocking.
  • Knit the collar and bottom band on larger needles for a frillier look.
