You know what this means, don’t you? It means I have had a small hiccup in my knitting of the Dale of Norway Baby Yoke sweater. After I finished both arms I realized that the body of the sweater was too short – like two inches too short! I don’t know how I managed to be so off in measurement. Rippit, rippit – it’s to the frog pond the ribbing goes.
Next up will be to seam the underarm openings. I read about this opening in Elizabeth Zimmerman’s Knitting Without Tears book. She uses this same method with her yoke sweaters so I was pleased to see it in the Dale of Norway pattern directions. For the most part, I do not like how Dale writes their patterns. They assume you have a wealth of sweater knitting knowledge which I do not have at this point. I’ve come a long way though but have further yet to go!
I will be taking some pictures of how I tackle this underarm hole. There are some excellent instructions in my Jacqueline Fee Sweater Workshop book that I am anxious to try out………soon, soon..
