Notes

September 11, 2018

Gauge 22st 30rows in 10cm square. CO 74 st

October 22, 2018

Finally finished weaving in all the lose ends. Would have finished this knit in just 1 or 2 weeks, but I lost heart after Harriet refused to try it on. Also had to undo and redo quite a lot to get the right fit since I was just winging the adaptation. Luckily I finally managed to persuade her to wear it!

On hindsight, the body was too baggy and wrists too narrow. So I would probably give more stitches to sleeves and fewer for body when dividing it. Or maybe reduce the number of overall increases.


Gauge 22st 30rows in 10cm square.
