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.
This pattern is inspired by the classic pocket T-shirt. Knit from the top down in one piece, the shoulders and neck are shaped using short rows, and the shoulders are joined using the invisible cast-on method. The body is worked in the round. The sleeve stitches are picked around the arm opening and are also worked top-down in the round. The sleeves and body are finished with seamless folded hems. The body length can be tailored simply by removing the work from your needles and trying it on to guarantee it is exactly the length you desire before you finish it.
CoBaSi, DK Weight, 55% Cotton, 21% Elastic Nylon, 16% Viscose from Bamboo, 8% Silk
This wonderful yarn has many benefits. The cotton is washable, the bamboo is sustainable, the silk is durable, and elastic nylon assures that the piece retains its shape. This wool-free blend is soft and gentle on your hands but has a wool like stretch. It sounds loveable, and it is.
The on-screen color representations for yarn may not be precise representations of actual colors due to variance in monitor calibrations.
32 sts and 42 rows = 4”/10cm in pattern after blocking.
