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

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 J.
For this neckline I decided to do a simple, yet a little bit low [cheeky] “V” shaped neckline. Here are the measurements J gave me and the tension square at the top.
10 Sts = 4.14cm
10 Rows = 2.83cm

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.

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
Row 1. Cast on 106sts

Row 2. Knit 4 Rs

Row 6. Decrease 1 stitch at each end of the row, every 6 Rows for a total of 60 Rows

Row 66. Knit 4 Rows

Row 70. Increase 1 Stitch at each end of the row, every 9 Rows for a total of 63 Rows

Row 133: Cast off 3 stitches at both ends of the row to start armhole

Decrease 1 stitch at each end of the Row, every 2 Rows for a total of 6 Rows

NECKLINE.

This will require either short rows or partial knitting, and you will need to knit this both sides of centre to create the neckline. This starts with the Left side, but feel free to start on the right by mirroring the instructions.

Row 139.  At centre only, decrease towards the side seam [away from centre], 1 stitch every 2 rows for a total of 60 Rows

[For a less cheeky V shaped neckline you can alter the instructions for the above line to:  Knit 30 Rows and decrease 1 Stitch per Row for 30 Rows]

Row 199: Knit 1 Row to finish

Row 200. Cast off

Now go back and repeat the neckline on the right hand side, following the same instructions from R139 to the end.

 

BACK.
For back, follow front pattern with an amendment to the neckline. Back pattern is as follows:

R1. Cast on 106sts

R2. Knit 4 Rs

R6. Decrease 1 stitch at each end of the row, every 6 Rows for a total of 60 Rows

R66. Knit 4 Rows

Row 70. Increase 1 Stitch at each end of the row, every 9 Rows for a total of 63 Rows

Row 133: Cast off 3 stitches at both ends of the row to start armhole

Decrease 1 stitch at each end of the Row, every 2 Rows for a total of 6 Rows

Row 139. Knit 51 Rows

This part will need partial knitting or short rows for neckline before or after cast off depending on your preferred cast off method :

Row 190. At centre, cast off 40 Stitches, [20 stitches each side of centre]

Decrease 1 stitch at the end of Row closest to centre, every for for a total of 10 Rows

Row 200. Cast off

Then repeat from Row 190 to end on other side of the neckline
