The Retail Method: Did you test me – THE RESULTS for “H”

So in each of my video’s I promised pictures and a pattern. So here is what happened with each of the videos….. knit along if you want to.

Here is what happened with H.
The measurements came in inches and had a shoulder width. So for this neckline I decided to do a wrap. Here are the measurements H gave me and the tension square at the top.
10 Sts = 3cm
10 Rows = 2.7cm

Testing Vicky to Create a Knitting Pattern in less than 10 minustes using the Retail Method

 

Here is the pattern written out properly with row numbers and standard information like cast on and off and with a full back pattern, that I usually don’t write in full as it mirrors the front. If you want to knit this, then please remember that I asked only for garment length, shoulder width, bust width, waist width and hem width only, so items such as armhole length have been approximated for the length of the garment based on standard retail measurements that would match the garments overall measurements. The pattern itself only tells you how many stitches and rows you need to create a shape. If you wanted to construct the garment differently, for example, keep the front as one piece and just attach a fake wrap front, then you would need to adjust the pattern accordingly based on your preferred method of construction.

However if you are interested in taking the course and discovering how to make a full pattern for yourself, you’ll be able to adjust any area of measurement you want to, add sleeves and any other detailing you want. Plus if you don’t want to knit clothes, maybe do some yarn bombing for a sofa……. then the same method still applies.

FRONT
R1. Cast on 199sts
R2. Decrease 1st each end of the row, every 8 Rs, for a total of 80 Rs

ON RIGHT SIDE OF ROW ONLY
R82. Knit 8 Rs
R90. Decrease 1st per Row for 142 Rs
R230. Knit 6 Rows.
R238. Cast off sts.

ON LEFT SIDE OF ROW ONLY
R82. Increase 1st every 26 Rs for a total of 78 Rs
R160. Cast off 3sts and decrease 1st every 2 Rs for a total of 6 Rs
R166. Knit 72 Rs
R238. Cast off sts

Then repeat. Swapping left and right instructions for the other side. This also creates two front panels so you have the option of creating a true wrap top. You do have the option as I mentioned above, only partially knitting the other front panel and linking or seaming.

BACK.
For back, follow front pattern and use the instructions  for LEFT SIDE OF ROW on both ends of each Row with one amendment. Back pattern is as follows:
R1. Cast on 199sts
R2. Decrease 1st each end of the row, every 8 Rs, for a total of 80 Rs
R82. Increase 1st every 26 Rs for a total of 78 Rs
R160. Cast off 3sts and decrease 1st every 2 Rs for a total of 6 Rs
*R166. Knit 60 Rs. Then at centre cast off 80sts, 40 either side of centre. This part will be partial knitting or short rows
*R226. Decrease 1 st, at centre, every Row for a total of 12Rs
R238. Cast off sts

Then repeat R226 onwards for other shoulder.
