Cecilia Niemeyer KAL – third week

A few KAL participants and I have just finished a Google Hangout about bust darts and I'm thrilled about how much fun we had! We have chatted about not only bust darts, but also about button bands (a cute idea came out for next week!) and blocking as we enjoyed Yone's grandson Emanuel showing up after his first day at school! An inspiring night before our next clue!We are almost done with our Cecilia Cardigan! Let's finish the sleeves?! Sleeves (same instructions for both) Transfer 58 [60, 64, 66, 66, 68, 70] held sleeve sts to dpns [or use desired method for knitting circular sleeves]. Beginning at the center of the underarm, attach the yarn and pick up and purl 1 [3, 3, 6, 8, 10, 13] sts, P58 [60, 64, 66, 66, 68, 70] sleeve sts, pick up and purl 1 [3, 3, 6, 8, 10, 13] sts also from the underarm. Place a marker and join the work. You will have 60 [66, 70, 78, 82, 88, 96] sts on the needle. Work 1 [1, 2, 1, 11, 5, 19] even rounds in Reverse Stockinette st. Decrease Round: P1, SSP, P until last 3 sts before marker, P2tog, P1. [2 sts decreased] Repeat the Decrease Round every 8 [7, 7, 6, 5, 5, 4] th round for 12 [14, 14, 17, 19, 21, 24] times. You will have 34 [36, 40, 42, 42, 44, 46] sts on the needles. Sleeve cuff ***The chart and written instructions for the lace motif are at the end of the pattern pdf - right after the collar charts! Round 1 to 14: Work 1 x 1 Rib over 6 [7, 9, 10, 10, 11, 12] sts, work Cuff Sleeve Chart over 22 sts [all sizes], work 1 x 1 Rib over 6 [7, 9, 10, 10, 11, 12] sts. Note: - We will work with two BO methods: one for the ribbing and the other over the chart motif. BO loosely in ribbing [knitting the knit sts and purling the purl sts] over 6 [7, 9, 10, 10, 11, 12] sts; BO loosely over 22 sts as follows: K2 * return both stitches to left needle and K2 together through the back of the loop, K1, repeat from * until all stitches have been bound off; BO loosely in ribbing [knitting the knit sts and purling the purl sts] over 6 [7, 9, 10, 10, 11, 12] sts. See you next week with a cute suggestion for finishing your Cecilia Cardigan with a twist! Peace Knit and Love as much as possible! Paula
