There are so many designs running around inside my head....
and I love to knit them, but to get it written down is a chore. I've created formulas, read about writing patterns, taken classes on the subject, written patterns and had them tech edited before, but it just seems that I need to be in the right frame of mind for all of it to click. It takes time: constructing it, engineering the process, figuring out the math and then editing the work.
I designed and knit this pattern years ago, but never finished writing it all out...
So last week I picked the draft up and started knitting and writing again. Today the pattern is complete and was just posted on Ravelry (ElizSCKnits) and Love Knitting....
|Pattern on Ravelry Elizscknits|
This is knit top down and in the round. No seams and very little weaving in of yarn tails.
|Sleeve stitches on a stitch holder or yarn|
|Dividing the sections of the yoke|
|Knitting the body and adding the swing|
After knitting the body and seed stitch hem, it's time to knit the sleeves in the round using two circular needles. Here I have transfered the sleeve stitches from the holder to a circular a needle and picked up three (3) stitches at the underarm. The Sleeve will be knit in the round.
