It’s day 8 of our 30 Day Sweater Knitting Challenge, and today I’m just giving a quick update on my progress.
Yesterday was a rest day in the 30 Day Sweater Course and since I’ve been staying on schedule I decided to take the day off.
But today I got to do a little bit of shaping for the first time. Woohoo!
Shaping The Arm Holes
I’m not going to go into the math that is required to figure out shaping the arm holes today.
That’s all outlined in the course and made super easy with the worksheets included.
Basically we’re creating a slight curve in the fabric to account for the portion of fabric that comes around the side of the torso and under the armpit.
We remove stitches rapidly at fist and then gradually for a few rows to create the curve. Again this is all outlined in detail in the coures.
The nice thing is you don’t have to try and figure out how to “make the curve”. The course has already done the hard math for you.
We’re almost done with 1/3 of the entire sweater.
The great thing is once this portion is finished everything else should go a bit faster.
Here’s my progress so far:
We’re about 3/4 of the way finished with the back of the sweater!
Tomorrow and the next day I’ll be finishing the back and working on the collar shaping. I’ll check in again on Day 10.
