Notes

Casted 71/sts (medium size) with a US11 and changed to a US 13 for the yoke and body. In place of the m1l/m1r , I’m doing a k1fb in the last stitch before and in the stitch after the marker.

I’ve decided to wear this on the stockinette side as I like the look of my raglan increases. Five more increases to go before separating the sleeves.

03-19-2018

Worked increase rows 13 times in place of 16 times.
Worked one knitted row and separated the sleeves on the wrong side (purl side). Casted on 4 sts for each underarm in place of 2 sts.

188 sts total as follows:

Right Front: 31 sts(includes ribbed edge)

Right Sleeve: 36 sts

Back: 54 (includes sts casted on for each unarm)

Left Sleeve: 36 sts

Left Front: 31 sts

Body

Worked in stockinette until measured 11” from the underarm to the bottom edge. Worked k1,p1 rib for 3 1/2”, bound off on right side in rib pattern.

Sleeves

Joined yarn, picked up and knitted 3 sts, pm, picked up and knitted 3 sts, worked three rounds in stockinette.

Decrease round: k1, k2tog, knit to last three sts before marker, ssk, k1. = 40 sts
