Not Quite

Here is the first attempt at the "boy" sweater based on this one. I figured if I used the same technique for the yoke and then just continued straight it would work. Well, not so much. Without the flared bottom, the body is just too narrow. So, what to do? My first thought is to increase the stitches for the back and front panels while leaving the armholes the same size as they seem reasonable.

For those who are interested, the yoke is moss stitch and the body a row of double crochet followed by three of single crochet. I'm thinking the next attempt will be all moss stitch. This, however, means I'll either have to learn how to do a button band or use a closure that won't need one... I guess I'll cross that bridge if I can get the proportions to work! Wish me luck!

Bring the pattern on Wed. so we can see what it looks like a bit closer. I love the moss stitch!

Hope all is well with you!

I love the moss stitch too! I hope that you give an update when you sort out how to fix it!

I think all moss stitch would be great. It would help the proportions, too, wouldn't it? You can def. figure out a button band, you budding designer you!
