That is what I am going to call this sweater – The I think I lost my Marbles Sweater. After I finished the writing up the pattern I got started immediately. Cast on 262 stitches loosely (putting a marker at 131 stitches) and joined in the round adding a second marker…..I know it doesn’t need to be said that I made sure that I didn’t twist the join. I had to add 2 extra stitches for the ribbing due to a 2 by 2 rib didn’t work with 262 stitches but I just added them during the first round of ribbing no worries there. I worked 13 rows or 2 inches of ribbing and switched to stockinette stitch ( during the first row which normally would have been knit regular I decreased the 2 extra stitches).
Now I am working the hip to waist shaping taking our 4 stitches every other round 13 times. I’m taking two stitches off the front and 2 off the back. Oh I forgot to add that is sweater will be about 24 inches in length when I am finished which should have it hit the mid-hip mark.
I love the color of this yarn!!!!!
