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

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 V.
For this neckline I decided to do a simple round neck, not quite low enough for a scoop neck, but some of you might be more familiar with that term. Here are the measurements V gave me and the tension square at the top.
10 Sts = 3.5cm
10 Rows = 2.5cm

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.

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 146sts

Row 2. Knit 4 Rs

Row 6. Decrease 1 stitch at each end of the row, every 8 Rows for a total of 80 Rows

Row 86.  Increase 1 Stitch at each end of the row, every 21 Rows for a total of 84 Rows

Row 170: Cast off 9 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 176. Knit 44 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 Right side, but feel free to start on the right by mirroring the instructions.

Row 220.  At centre only, cast off 20 sts, 10 sts each side of the centre.

At the end of the Row nearest to the centre, decrease, towards the side seam [away from centre], 1 stitch every Row for a total of 16 Rows

Row 236. Knit 16 Rows

Row 252. Cast off

Now go back and repeat the neckline on the left hand side, following the same instructions from Row 220 to the end.

 

BACK

Follow the front throughout with 1 amendment to the neckline and cross back as follows:

Row 1. Cast on 146sts
