Made a 5x5 panel with Continuous Join as You Go.

10/8/20 - New Construction

So glad to be working on this after a month off!
Decided to frog back and make a 5x4 for the front and Back panels. 5x5 would lose the cute cropped look. Even with 4 rows going down, it will still be cropped on me bc of long torso.

10/9/20 - Both panels have border and sides.

Body Panel Border as instructed.

Side Seams of Body Panels: I had to add stitches since I added an extra row of granny squares (5x4 instead of 5x3).
To get the circumference I want I did 42 sts up the sides 4x on each side of both panels. Finished Circumference (schematic 1) will be about 46 inches this way.

With Side Seams each panel is 23.5 inches from bottom corner to bottom corner.

10/10/20 - BACK Panel Yoke and shoulder shaping

Back Yoke and Shoulder Shaping: Back panel only. (I emailed Heather to clarify- thanks Heather!)

4 Rows across as written in pattern.

Shoulder tabs 20sts

10/10/20 Ribbing Size 3 in Pattern

10/10/20 Cowl

42 chains for 41 sts to get 10” width.

10/11/20 Cowl

75 rows of blo for 26.25”

10/16/20 - Sleeves Done As Written in Pattern

Now to put it all together!


All the pieces are seamed and ends sewin in! I LOVE this sweater so much!
