Demelza Pullover Part 3

Posted on March 20, 2017 by Katy Petersen | 0 Comments

This week you will be working up the body of the sweater. You'll start with the bottom. Then you will split for the arm openings, work the front and then the back. When you're done you'll work a row of slip sts to seam the shoulders and you can block the piece if you'd like.

Before you get started here is some additional information.

Abbreviations ch = chain, st(s) = stitch(es), sc = single crochet, esc = extended single crochet, eesc = extra extended single crochet, rs = right side, ws = wrong side, BLO = back loop only, FLO = front loop only, sm = stitch marker

Special Stitches

Extended single crochet (esc): Insert hook into indicated st, pull up a loop, yarn over pull through one loop on hook, yarn over pull through 2 loops on hook.

Extra extended single crochet (eesc): Insert hook into indicated st, pull up a loop, (yarn over pull through one loop on hook) twice, yarn over pull through 2 loops on hook.

Trail Stitch Pattern (video tutorial HERE)

You will need to reference this as you work.

Row 1 (ws): Ch 1, turn, working in the FLO esc in each st across.

Row 2: Ch 1, turn, working in the FLO esc in the 1st 3, *eesc in the unworked front loop of the next st 2 rows below, esc in the next 3; repeat from * until 1 st remains, esc in the last st.

Row 3: Repeat row 1.

Row 4: Ch 1, turn, working in the FLO esc in the 1st st, *eesc in the unworked front loop of the next st 2 rows below, esc in the next 3; repeat from * until 3 sts remains, eesc in the unworked front loop of the next st 2 rows below, esc in the last 2.

Time to grab your hook and get started! 

Bottom Trim

With A ch 7.

Row 1: Sc in the 2nd ch from hook and each ch across. (6)

Row 2: Ch 1, turn, working in the BLO sc in each st across. (6) Repeat row 2 until you have 100(112, 124, 136, 148, 160, 172) total rows. Slip st the first row to the last row working in the back loops to keep ribbing consistent.

Bottom

Round 1 (rs): Ch 1 (does not count as a st from here on), esc in the end of each row of the trim, join with a slip st to the first st. 100(112, 124, 136, 148, 160, 172)

Place a sm on st number 6(7, 8, 9, 12, 13, 16), 46(51, 56, 61, 64, 69, 72), 56(63, 70, 77, 86, 93, 102) and 96(107, 118, 129, 138, 149, 158).
