Do you love the Shell Stitch? Well, you're going to love this little sweater so much. It can be found in the January 1975 issue of The Workbasket & Home Arts magazine. You can download the complete Ensemble >>HERE<<
Here are the materials I used:
I did finally figure out and learn what "10 dc evenly spaced" means. I don't know why I always let those words intimidate me so much. Oh my goodness, it's so easy!!
Let's see how well I can explain this...after completing the first Row, here is what you will have at the end of these Rows:
Row 2, dc in every 5th stitch- you will have a total of 61 stitches.
Row 3, dc in every 7th stitch-71 stitches total.
Row 4, dc in every 8th stitch-81 stitches total.
Row 5, dc in every 9th stitch-91 stitches total.
Row6, dc in every 10th stitch-101 stitches total.
Row 7, dc in every 11th stitch-111 stitches total.
Row 8, dc in every 12th stitch-121 stitches total.
You are now ready for the fun part-the shell stitch! Once you are finished with the body, you will be ready to add the sleeves. Again, super easy and it will go quick because it's only 7 rows. Whoa baby!
This is a really sweet pattern! I am planning to make the bonnet and blanket for my shop and/or as a gift. I really love how the Bernat Yarn looks and feels. It's one of the thicker yarns I enjoy very much. If you haven't ever used it, I highly recommend trying it!
Again, I hope y'all enjoy this pattern! If you make this, I do hope you tag me so I can see your work. I would love to see it! Also, I hope everyone has had a great week! Mine has been a little trying and we could use some prayers.
Until next time, let's keep cro-yayin'! (even though I've been knitting all week...hehehehhe)
