Gauge Swatch

This is as close as I get to doing a gauge swatch....

One ball of yarn = about 12" of sleeve. Gauge is correct so I am going to keep on trucking.

If anyone else decides that they ever want to knit this particular sweater - I am posting both corrections and modifications on my Ravelry project page. Trinity stitch? Not in this lifetime. Flat and sew all those weird corners together? I don't think so either.

The Peplum obviously has to be knit flat but I will knit the lower portions of the sleeves in the round followed by knitting them directly onto the peplum as I get there. The way I have it figured there should be only ends to weave in but no sewing.

I don't think catching up with Barbara falls into the realm of possibility, so I am going to have to figure out a neat gift for her!

The trinity stitch is what kind of scared me away from this pattern. Are you replacing it with regular seed stitch? I will definitely check out your notes after you're done because I plan on knitting this cardigan this year. The sleeve is a fine looking swatch. :)

If there is a way to knit a flat piece in the round . . . then I really can't imagine any reason to knit something flat. Why would anyone write a pattern that you have to seam when it is possible to knit in the round with NO seems.
