And the little
wool vest on the lower left was my first and last attempt at steeks
...too traumatic although it turned out OK :-)
on enough stitches to go around you :-)
up to the bottom of the armhole...at this point I did steeks of 20
stitches so I could keep working the piece all as one instead of having
to split for the fronts and backs...but you could do that...
At the base of
the neck I cast off enough stitches for the size of neck opening I
wanted (both sides) and then did about 14 rows for the shoulders and
grafted them together at the top of the shoulders.
There was no
step-type shaping of any kind...just a simple rectangle to fit. Your
mileage may vary :-)
