After swatching with the Blue Moon Yarn and getting gauge, the start of the sweater commences with the yoke.
I have made many of Carol's sweaters and have a few more in my queue.
The pattern comes out in parts and the first is to start and knit up the yoke. Since this is a top down raglan sweater (I love this kind), the cast on was easy and then the increasing with the lace pattern commenced. Part A ends like this.
It is tricky to try to remember to make the buttonhole as I go along and I have notes all over my pattern. It is challenging and engaging at the same time.
The next section is a slower increase to shape the shoulders of the raglan following the same pattern.
I also initiated the color change to the next skein and I had about 6 grams left of the first skein. The color change is very subtle.
