I'm working along on the first black section. It's going good. I like the little rounded edge at the bottom of the jacket. (4 rows)
The short rows are working so far. (YO)
I would however be in deep dodo if Mona had not sent me the spreadsheet she did!
I would have devised something I'm sure, but she had already done the spreadsheet and it's a great great help to me.
I've also marked all the YO for the short rows, so I know what to pick up when I get to the stripes section.
Larger pins mark the increases. (M1)
So you see there is a lot going on even if everything is garter stitch.
