I got the yarn I think I'm going to use...sock yarn...
the pattern only has one size 0-6 mos....so I'm kinda stuck there, but I DO get what you are saying.....It does give chest measurements and length measurements....so the length is good...
I'm putting this down here for reference...
figure your gauge with yarn you want to work with
X that by the width you wish the garment to be
that's the number of CO stitches...
ack...this is too complicated already....
based on the measurements of the sweater
It looks like the back should be 8.8 inches wide x 10 inches long
each panel should be 8 inches wide and 10 inches long
So, if I get true to gauge and get 7 sts per inch, I CO 62 sts, and go until it's the length I need
CO 56 sts and go until desired length
CO 39 sts,
[COLOR=Black] Row 5 (RS): increase one st at each edge.
Continuing in st st, increase one st at each edge every 4th row until there are 56 sts.
How's my math look? I bolded the changes....
