Audrey is a really fun knit. There's lots of body shaping which keeps things more interesting than knit in 2x2 rib for 35 miles :P
This is either the front or the back (they are made the same).
Check out these sexy decreases :)
I was confused by the armhole shaping instructions but I trusted the pattern and they turned out great!
I have a concern about this project. You see, although I got stitch gauge, my row gauge was off. I'm getting 26 rows over 4 inches instead of 30 rows. It didn't occur to me that this could be a problem since I haven't knit a sweater with so much shaping in it. When I finished the body shaping, the instructions said to knit until you reached 34cm. I was exactly at that length at that point. When I knit the armholes it said to work a further 20 rows until piece measures 47cm but I reached that measurement in 12 rows.
I'm not sure what to do. My instincts tell me that since the piece is the right length then it should fit alright. The darts are a little out of place and the armhole curve more slowly but I think it should still be ok. Anyone see a flaw in this theory?
I was also thinking that I could make this the back and when I knit the front I could speed up the increases in the body which would keep one of the increase ribs from falling right on my breast (can I say breast in a knit blog post?). Any thoughts?
