I’ve had a lot of home time today so have knitted over three inches of the front since this morning. I am striping the front yoke differently and I have to say…it’s growing on me! I hate knitting something with the feeling inside that I won’t like the result and may end up frogging, especially when there are so many short lengths of yarn involved. However, I think it’ll be okay, as long as the size is fine. The armhole depth looks small so after I have finished the armhole increases I will try it on and make sure there’s enough room in the armpit area! (I think armscye is the correct term.)
Because my gauge was a half size, I have to follow the stitch count for size 44″ in the book but knit the length (rows) for the size I want (40″).
