My first ever KAL is exceeding my expectations. 😍 The sheer amount of learning is incredible! The Top-Down Sweater Tutorial is terrific. It is well written and provides a thorough explanation of the process. I have been busier than normal but I am still finding time to knit.
I began working on my neck. I decided to do a shaped neck, where the back of the sits higher than the front. I worked back and forth until I reached my desired depth. I then cast on 7 stitches on the front, to equal the same number of stitches as the back, and joined my neck.
The next step was increases. I worked my increases every other row until my sleeves and front & back equaled my measurements, plus a little ease.
Now, I am knitting my yoke to the proper length. This means I will need 45 rows of knitting. At this point, I have knit 22 rounds to get my sleeve and front & back increases from my join.
This means 23 more rounds of knitting to go before I split my sleeves.
I have two doctor’s appointments today with an hour between them so my needles will be clicking along.
