Realized I missed the rows to join in the round when I got to the arm split and it wasn’t long enough, have to pick back 6 rows
March 25, 2021
knit two extra rounds at the end of Part 1 before the sleeve separation round in order to make that part of the shoulders/torso long enough
March 28, 2021
Did the C/D bust darts immediately after sleeve separation (possibly a round or two too high? but they do have to be done in the correct hbs round!)
Then about an inch more of body pattern before starting the triangle.
April 5, 2021
Finished the body, one extra round of half-brioche ribbing at the bottom
Picked up right sleeve:
PU 3, PU 3 in hbs pattern, PU 2
At the end of that round, ssk the last regular stitch with the first picked-up stitch, placed marker before hbs as in pattern.
April 13, 2021
finished sleeve as per pattern, leaving it on the cable until I can have Kath try it on. (update, length as per pattern was exactly right)
starting 2nd sleeve

Restarted last week — I got 75% of the way through with the first one, tried doing a stripe of the bright green from the wildflower socks and it was too The Joker — ripped back and finished with a block of some variegated (striped?), which looks much better.
Bound off body of first mitt and started 2nd mitt today.

(9 rows for the thumbs)

Made shorter than pattern because thatâ€™s the height I like

Yarn is a handspun from Sarah, previously used in https://www.ravelry.com/projects/epersonae/diamond-cap
May 11, 2021
tried on after a couple of rows of decreases: itâ€™s both too big and not really the right drape (?) for a hat
started frogging and realized it could make a good cowl! will reknit the last row of purls and then 2 rows stockinette and rows of 2×2 rib to match the bottom
With handspun by Emi

Ending last mesh section around 122/124 rows
April 24, 2021
Two extra rows before sleeve separation

Sleeve: pick up 7 underarm stitches, knit 7 pattern repeats plus 5 rounds counter should read 6/8
looks like my previous version was made on #3 needles; this time Iâ€™m going to try the 2.5s that the pattern actually calls for. (after messing up the pattern repeat and ripping back, decided to cast back on with 3s, as it seemed pretty small with 2.5)
March 15, 2021
4 pattern repeats up to the gusset
2 pattern repeats thru the gusset
2 pattern repeats post-gusset
8 rounds stst for thumbs
March 17, 2021
They are a tiny bit small, still not sure if #3s would have been too big
Using one skein of overdyed (grey and green) Space Needle and one skein of regular Space Needle
March 7, 2021
Used 57 gr overdyed, 47 gr plain
Bound off with Jennyâ€™s stretchy bindoff
January 29, 2021
Using reclaimed yarn from the Owligan.
Tried gauge swatch on pattern needles (10.5) – row was fine, stitch was about a half-inch small (I think).
Gauge swatch on 11s seems to be the right stitch gauge but row gauge is a bit big. Will need to compensate on sweater length.

Discovered that I did the â€œbrkâ€ (half-brioche?) wrong through the entire knitted flat section — it looks â€œtwistedâ€ in comparison to the rows in the round. Probably going to keep going anyway! The only place where the switch should be noticeable is on the upper back.
Also, I think the sleeves might be a smidge small but I donâ€™t want to make the v-neck any lower — might try a suggestion I got from Maâ€™ayan about getting a few extra stitches added when picking up sleeves.
February 3, 2021
After doing the half-brioche inside out during the bust dart, I ripped the whole thing back to start over.
February 10, 2021
Had to do one extra round after sleeve separate rounds in order to not do the half-brioche inside out!!!!
Also, starting triangle detail after only 2 rows of body pattern because my row gauge is long. (Looks like it will be 7+ inches to do the whole triangle detail, which is if anything longer than I was thinking I wanted)
February 15, 2021
Picked up sleeve, added 5 st instead of 3
February 18, 2021
First sleeve finished at row 7 of repeat 6, about 36 gr of the former-hat yarn remaining
February 21, 2021
Went down to #10 needles for neck finishing. Used up almost the whole amount of reclaimed yarn, only scraps left!
