Like Skeins Through the Hourglass…

CPH Notes

Copying my Ravelry notes here just in case. I need to back these up in case I want to make this again later. 🙂

As usual, I’m making on-the-fly mods to hopefully fit better. Keeping track of them here! 🙂

Back (approx 3.5 skeins):

  • Long Tail CO
  • 3.5″ Ribbing (21 rows)
  • 9 repeats before BO for armholes
  • 5 repeats + 4 rows before starting shoulder BO (knit stitches onto smaller options cables instead of binding off)

Left Front (Approx 1.7 skeins):

  • Long Tail CO
  • 3.5″ Ribbing (21 rows)
  • 9 repeats before BO for armholes
  • last row of 4th repeat on holder for neck shaping
  • 5 repeats + 4 rows before shoulder BO (shoulder sts saved live for 3-needle BO)

Right Front (Approx 1.7 skeins):

  • Long Tail CO
  • 3.5″ Ribbing (21 rows)

  • Row 4 of 14th repeat start decreases (13 repeats + 4 rows)
  • BO Rows: BO8, BO8, BO2, BO2, BO9, BO11
  • Restart on WS to correct for cable pattern (purl row)
  • Start decrease section (3 times)

Hood:

  • Pick up ratio used 3:4
  • Knit in stockinette with cable on ends to ___”

1/19/10 Left sleeve started with mods, looking good! Started increase on Row 19 because the sleeve was fitting well as it was. Using up leftover balls from sweater body to start this.

1/14/10 Seamed Left Front to Back, 3-needle BO Left Front to back @ shoulder. Started Right Front at Knit Together.

Seaming notes: Tutorial used for rib – ignored knit rows at edge of Left Front, knit into bottom of purl on LF side and top of purl on B side. I think I have extra room so I won’t miss those few rows but next time will plan for that on the edges. Tutorial used for sewing in sleeve.
