Glorious Garter Yoke
I’ve been scouring Ravelry and the Internet for everything I can find about the February Baby Sweater to flesh out EZ’s pithy directions.
My notes for the yoke portion of this sweater:
- Slip the first stitch of each row for a nice edge
- Buttonholes go on Rows 3, 13, and 23 on both sides for accurate button placement: sl 1, K2, k2tog, YO and then ssk, YO, K2
- Increase with a kfb instead of M1. Place increases on odd numbered rows
I’ve noticed that there doesn’t seem to be a comprehensive guide to the FBS like there is for the BSJ. Because of this, I’ll be posting my notes as I go along for the next time that I make this pattern or in case you’d like to see my approach.
It turns out that I started this sweater shortly after the mom went into labor–she was scheduled for a C-section today, but the baby was ready to come early.
P.S. I had every intention of blogging the past two days, but spent Wednesday running errands on Sweetie’s day off followed by some insomnia that I recovered from last night. Blech.
