Hester

7.00

Hester is constructed in pieces: a central panel of vertical rib is worked for the back yoke, then the left back yoke is worked out horizontally from that and set aside. The left front is worked horizontally, and the two pieces are joined to work the left sleeve to the cuff. The right yoke and sleeve is worked in the same fashion, but with the front worked first, then the back, then the sleeve. The front cast on edges are seamed together, and stitches are picked up in the body circumference and worked down. After completion, the shoulders are seamed and ribbing is picked up and worked out at the neckline.
