To put in hyperlinks with text as the link, it would look like this but with the proper square brackets instead of round brackets (don't worry, I had to copy-paste the format from the help page for MONTHS when I first joined):

But more to the point, I think KatyKamikazi more or less made a square front panel (with a scoop at the neckline, of course) with triangularish side/back panels, where the longest point of the triangle ties behind the neck and the "back" point is cut off, with the edge cut into strips and knotted behind the back.
The easiest way to find out would be to send a private message to KatyKamikazi
and ask her directly. She's more likely to respond to a PM because all PMs give you a notice at the top of your screen, whereas notification of replies to your own topics only happen if you select "notify" on that topic.
More generally, when working with knits, it's best to make sure to use a ball-point needle that will slip between the threads instead of snagging, use a stretch-stitch or narrow zigzag for the actual sewing, and loosen your presser foot so that it doesn't over-stretch the fabric as it's being sewn. To loosen your presser foot, loosen the screw that holds it on, lower the foot, and tighten the screw while the foot as as high up the shank as possible. You can also use an even-feed foot/walking foot (generally used in quilting), which pulls the fabric from the top at the same time as the bottom, helping to prevent over-stretch.
Don't be afraid to experiment and fail! Most of my first projects were horrible
Best of luck, and have fund
