This turned out to be the rough draft. It’s going to be a nice, loose fitting, sort of T-shirt style Spring sweater. I’m having a lot of fun with the stitches and figuring it out as I go.
These are stitches I’ve never done before. Mesh and dropstitch, but they’re not completely foreign concepts. The mesh just took me a few rounds to get used to and, now that I’ve gotten a good look at the dropstitch pattern I was using, I can write it out the way I’d prefer to do it.
I also got a good look at the size this was and, wow. That was going to be a lot bigger than I was aiming for. So, as frustrating as it can be to start over, it was clearly the right choice. The hours spent knitting this were totally worth it. Now, to begin again.
