StitchSaver™ Row Checker
It is hard to make a mistake with my unique Row Checker. It helps you keep track of stitch count row-by-row for each section of the pattern, plus all increase and decrease shaping. With check off boxes for each row you can put this project aside for a week, a month or a year and return to the exact spot where your stopped.
For your convenience, we’ve collected definitions for abbreviations, links to tutorial videos that may make knitting your project easier and more fun, as well as guides to techniques and tailoring. Visit the Knitting Help page on our website.
The stockinette yoke combined with a generous grid of open eyelet and fitted ribbing on the body and arms works to expand the chest and diminish the waist. Who wouldn’t like that? As a top-down design without seams and invisible raglan increases, Doug provides techniques that add up to a pattern that is both interesting and rewarding. And the result of your needlework could be a great gift for yourself or someone else.
