I bet I haven't used the word prerequisite since high school home ec class.... always prerequisites before going to the next step I liked skipping steps but here I am doing it. Don't tell Mrs I. or Mrs. C.) This is a variation of the honeycomb stitch, my book of stitches called it a wasp nest stitch. It is kinda fiddly to do on size 0 needles but then if I ever do an Aran sweater it will be easy on big needles. Maybe. Thats the reasoning anyway.
Once I got in the groove for starting things I couldn't stop so the sleeve of a sweater is also on the needles the pattern is Sea Salt by Laura Aylor. All the reviews on ravelry said it was easy and gosh darn it is! I have read the directions 4 or 5 times and reread them as I have knit (don't tell Mrs. I or Mrs. C from home ec class that reading directions helps)This pattern has you knitting the sleeve then the bodice and the other sleeve with no seams. Then you pick up stitches and knit the neckline, then pick up the stitches at the bottom of the bodice and knit the rest. No seams!! Linking to Judy's OTN. --Ann--
