Oh yeah, I was going to mention that…I didn’t, at first. I did a single strand with the same needle that I was going to use for the rest (size 6). I felt that the double strand would be too bulky for my liking, but the single strand did NOT look good. The cast on # of stitches accounts for that extra bulk and larger needle size for the ribbing, so if you don’t do it the lower edge will be way too small. I didn’t want to take all that I’d done apart so I inserted a needle into a destination row on one of my lower stripes and from there worked back down to the bottom edge with a double strand for the ribbing and a size 8 needle. I do NOT recommend doing it this way though, I’d say do the double strand right from the start like the pattern says and it will look great. I’m very happy with it now.
I just finished the right front and joined the right shoulder. I’ll get the left front done this evening and then the majority of the actual knitting will be done!! :happydance:
