set up= 4-10(front1)-10(sleeve1)-20(back)-10(front2)-10(sleeve2)-4
First and last 4 sts always knit in seed sts/Moss stitch pattern
First two rows only purl and place 4 inc markers
i have knitted increases rows every second row by adding 1 st just before marker and 1st st after marker, all in total 14 times so i have knitted 28 rows; then i have separated fronts, slevees (place them on the waste yarn) and back!
I have knitted 2 fronts and back together (begin in ROW5!) without increases for 32 rows and still I was following the cable pattern until the end. Last 3 rounds (so rows: 30, 31, 32) only purled and then BO.Then go back to devided sleeves, you just knit them with your prefered method without any decreases. Remember to begin in R5 of the cable pattern, I have done 38 rounds and all the time with the cable pattern through, last 3 rounds only purled (so rows: 36, 37, 38) and BO.
Ten rozpinany sweterek wydziergalam z niecalego motka Medusy na trojkach. Warkocz jak widac powtorzylam na dwoch przodach, rekawach i plecach. Wyszlo malenstwo dla noworodka czyli cos co bede wkrotce potrzebowac, zrobie identyczny wkrotce, ale w innym kolorze.
