Time for Section II of of our NO SEW Vest project.
The remaining sections won't require as much knitting, so I'll be posting them more often. It may even give you a way to relax during (an often stressful) holiday.
You have now worked up to the armhole. Now we will be dividing the stitches in half. Here's how it's done: Knit next 42 (44, 46, 48, 50) sts onto stitch holder to be worked later (these will be the FRONT).
The remaining stitches on the needle will be the BACK. You will now be working back and forth on these stitches, not in the round. Note: Since you will be continuing in stockinette stitch you will need to KNIT one row and PURL one row instead of just KNIT.
Okay now let's work the BACK.
BEGIN ARMHOLE SHAPING as follows:
Row 1 Bind off the first 3 stitches. Knit across row.
Row 2 Bind off the first 3 stitches. Purl across row.
Continue working in stockinette stitch (k 1 row, p 1 row) until BACK measures
9 (9, 9 1/2, 9 1/2, 10)" from beginning of ARMHOLE SHAPING.
MORE TO COME ON SUNDAY the 18th!
