Notes

The body of this pullover is worked in the round from the lower edge to the underarm, then the front and back are worked separately back and forth. After the shoulders are joined, sleeve stitches are picked up and the sleeve cap is shaped using short-rows. The sleeve is then worked in the round from the top down.

  1. I am knitting the Grassland Tee as printed in the Knit Scene Magazine. I do not understand the instructions on page 73, about half way down the page. ‘Work one WS row. At beg is RS rows, BO 2 (2,3,3,3,4) sts once, then BO 2 sts once. For the 37 3/4 size do I BO 5? The way this is written has me confused. Thanks for help.

    1. Hi Carolyn,

      At that point, you’re shaping the right front neck, so you will bind off (BO) stitches only at the beginning of RS rows and work WS rows even. So, you work the first WS row even, then BO 3 stitches at the beginning of the next RS row (24 stitches remain). Then you’ll work another WS row even, then BO 2 stitches at the beginning of the next RS row (22 stitches remain). Later, when you shape the left front neck, you’ll BO stitches only at the beginning of WS rows (first 3 sts on one WS row, then 2 sts on the next WS row).

      I hope this helps.
