Bottoms up!!/kanpa~i!
Feeling a bit exhausted, but I finally made it!
(phew~took me one month…)

Focus on 2 things: 1. contiguous
2. the length/distribution of the sections

Instead of working from the bottom , i started from the back neck and knitted down. Rather than raglan increase, i used incredible SusieM’s Contiguous method without sleeve increases. This method is perfect for the pattern because those vertical lines from the shoulder line are kept its direction, vertical.

  • Work on WS all the way to the last; inside out= I prefer knit to purl!
  • Thread weight yarn held double
  • Gauge:22sts x 28rws on Jp#3(3mm)
  • Back neck =(patt 9sts x 7+1=64sts) +4sts
  • Cable CO68sts
  • Contiguous
  • CO 37 for front neck
  • Distribution of sections from top:

A(eyelet)19cm.
B(1:7rib)7cm.
C(1:3rib)5cm.
D(1:3rib &1:1rib)5cm.
E(1:1rib)3.5cm. ←waist
D’(1:4rib(inc 1st)&1:1rib)5cm.
C’(1:4rib)5cm
B’(1:10(inc 1st))8cm

Garter, eyelet(k2tog,y), Garter, decreaseing evenly.
Elastic BO on ws

I want to make it from top using contiguous method.

これだと肩ライン下もスパークが縦にはしる
糸が尽きるところまで丈伸ばす

shoulder line= Twist st. No set-in-sleeve
わたしのおっぱいの始まりが下すぎるっという問題。気持ちラインを下げたけど、おっばいの出だしまで付き合ってられないので、次の模様に移動。
