Cast on as in pattern. Knit ribbing.
Place markers and create short rows so that the back has 8-10 rows moving closer to the front.

Moved garter stitch panels to raglan in between increases.
Knit around

sleeves are way too long. need to remove about 3in.

like the idea of making it a vest, rather then an open garment.

forgot to change needle size after the band. so only went up to a 3.75mm for the rest of the body. might use a 4mm for the colour work.

making long sleeves - cast on 38st, garter st for 16 rounds
start pattern - increase 2 st on first round.

increase till 48 st. and sleeve measures 26cm for size 4

Knit the "KAN" Stash in a year.

Posted: 10 Aug 2016 04:38 AM PDT

so the idea is to knit the equivalent meterage you brought at KAN 2015, before KAN 2016. does not have to be what you brought at KAN. can be from stash.

i have around 10,000 metres to knit. wish me luck.

10,293m in finished projects and another 1000m in nearly finished items.
