The stitches that are remaining on your circular needle will be used to knit the body of the sweater. The stitches on the holders will be used to knit the sleeves after you have completed the body of the sweater.

Waist Increasing Rows

Repeat rows 2-6 twice more.
Knit 4 rows, bind off.

Using a size G crochet hook do single crochet around the entire edge that you just finished binding off. Do two more rows of single crochet. Cut the yarn and slide it through the loop and pull tightly.

Simply remove your stitch holder and place the live sts as evenly as possible between 3 of your double pointed needles. You will also need to pick up one sts where your armpit will be. This is done so there wont be a big hole there. I have added a photo so you can better understand what I mean.


Simply Knit around in stockinette stitch until the sleeves measure 6(6.5)(6.5)(7)(7)(7.5) inches. Bind Off.
Do three rows of single crochet just as you did for the bottom waist.

Weave in all ends

Blocking this garment is simple. Place it in warm, slightly soapy water. Then squeeze out all of the water being careful not to distort the shape. Lay it flat, do not stretch it. The main area that will need to be blocked is the lace neckline. Once you have it laid neatly, place a warm iron on it for just a second and continue to do that for the entire cowl neck area.

Really well done. I'm jealous.

I can't quite tell, but is there some detailing on the side seam?
