i fell in love with the look of this sweater and have started working on it:
Color Me Lovely Sweater
first of all my striping isnt even close to that of the pic but oh well i guess it doesnt look too bad lol (i’ll post a pic later when i get a free minute)
now i’m on the shoulder shaping and i’m really confused.
ok so i have 15 st on a stitch holder, 32 st in the middle and another 15 on another holder. so i worked with the 32 and now i’m ready for the shoulder shaping but i’m confused about these :
Shoulder shaping: Bind off 5 (6, 6, 6) sts at beg of next 2 rows; then 5 (5, 5, 6) sts at beg of next 2 rows; work 1 row even on remaining 12 (13, 14, 15) sts. Bind off loosely.
so this is still working on the 32 stitches in the middle??? and i bind all of the stitches that i have on the needles???
Right front shaping: With WS facing, join another ball of yarn and continue in St st on 15 (17, 18, 19) sts until piece measures 2-1/4 (3, 3-1/4, 3-1/4)" above armhole, end with a WS row.
if i just bound off the stitches where do i continue with these??? are they talking about the first 15 stitches on the holders???
Neck shaping: Bind off 3 (4, 5, 5) sts. Work 1 row even. Dec 1 st at neck edge only twice (for all sizes)-10 (11, 11, 12) sts remain. Work even in St st on remaining sts until piece measures same as back to shoulder shaping, end with RS row.
again, what stitches are they talking about???
[b]Shoulder shaping: Bind off 5 (6, 6, 6) sts at beg of next row. Work 1 row even. Bind off remaining 5 (5, 5, 6) sts.
Left front shaping: With WS facing, work to correspond to right front, reversing all shaping.
Making sleeves: Cast on 28 (32, 34, 38) sts. Work even in St st until piece measures 6-1/2 (8, 8-1/2, 9-1/4)" from beg, or desired 3/4-sleeve length to underarm, end with WS row.
Sleeve cap shaping: Bind off 2 (2, 3, 3) sts at beg of next 2 rows. Dec 1 st at beg and end of every other row 4 (4, 4, 5) times-16 (20, 20, 22) sts remain. Bind off 5 (6, 6, 7) sts at beg of next 2 rows. Work 1 row even on remaining 6 (8, 8, 8) sts. Bind off.
whatever you guys can help me with i’d really appreciate it. they are just on the needles now waiting to be continued.
