Janet Szabo, baby sweater/sampler from her Aran Sweater Design course
Yarn: Riverview Farm wool
Method: Hand knit
Completed: July 9, 2007.
The sweater measures 11 inches wide by 11 inches long.
|Here you can see the steps in
progress -- both shoulder straps have been done, and the back has been
(picked up from stitches along each of the shoulder straps and) knit
down to the bottom of the armhole opening, before leaving the stitches
on a holder. Here, I've begun one side of the front.
Ultimately, the front will be knit down to the bottom of the armhole opening, and then the torso will be worked in the round. The sleeves will be made by picking up stitches along the front & back edges of the armhole, as well as continuing the live shoulder strap stitches/pattern.

sleeves (the rest of the sleeves is done in moss stitch (filler)).
