Notes & Modifications

This was a self-drafted experiment project :). I knit a round yoke in contrast yarn using the increase model from the Syrinx sweater yoke, then bound off in i-cord.

I picked up 108 stitches on each front and back, increased the stitches by 1/3, then by 1/4; the I did an increase on both sides of every knit row for 58 total rows. I added 12 stitches at the under arm and knit in the round until my yarn ran out. Then I switched to the contrast yarn and knit a split garter stitch hem with eyelets. I bound off the underarms with i-cord to stabilize them.
