Notes

June 18th: I swatched and then started to knit waistband.
July 2nd: I finished waistband and started upper body.
July 8th: I finished upper body and started to knit lower body.
July 14th: I finished lower body and started to knit sleeves. Because my gauge wasn’t right I had to modify the sleeves.

Modifications:

  • I made 16 leaf in the waistband. On the pick up round I pick up 8 stitches and then made yarn over, except at the edges and in the middle of back I had 9 stitches between yarn overs (picked up 163 stitches + 19 yarn overs = 182 stitches). On the next round I knitted yarn overs tbl.
  • The height from top edge of waistband to armhole is 15 cm.
  • I knitted sleeves from up to down. I picked up 71 stitches from armholes. I knitted 7 s and made wrap&turn. Then I knitted 14 s before next wrap&turn. I knitted short rows (took 1 stitch more on every round) until there were 7 stitches before mock side seam stitch. Then I knitted with all 71 stitches until the length of the sleeve was good.
