Design:Pandora jacket

Pandora's Box of techiques

Hemlines feature long bells, worked with short rows and at the same time decreased leaving a single stitch, forming a stalk of the vertical pattern. Decreased into the waist then increase to chest and shoulders. The decreases and increases are worked into the stitch panel bringing the single stitch stalk closer then opening out again, creating the hour glass style to the panels. The bell sticth edge is the cast on edge of the collar therefore the collar is sewn into the Vee neck shaping.

Design: Pandora jacket

Working this design across 8 chest sizes, the more fitted a design the more size options are required when I make to measure and therefore are included in the pattern you recieve in your knitting kit. Written instructions are used for the bells and short row shaping on the hem line and cuff. The body shaping is charted as a diagram, with cable twist and shaping every 6th row. Pattern includes adjusting for the waist fit for low and high waisted, as well as a standard fit.
