Done with main back

Okay, I’m done with the main section of the back of the Bastille sweater. Now it’s tim to divide for the neck and shoulders. Note to self: ended on row 10 of the main cable.

    Hello. I’ve been reading your blog on and off, since the fist sweater. A lot of fun stuff. And, now I have something to add.

    I just finished my Cafe Bastille sweater, and I have a tip for you:

    The pattern says that after you divide for the shoulders (putting the neck stitches on the holder) to work 3 rows even, then bind off. I did it that way for all four shoulders, but when it got down to sewing the shoulders together, I didn’t like it. I ripped it all out and started over. Do four rows in pattern (remember, 1 row is the first one across, then the 3 rows even), and place them on a holder (don’t bind off). When it comes down to attaching the shoulders, you can just weave them together with a grafting stitch.

    Everything else is straight forward. The sweater came out great.

    I hope this helps.
