The White Cinnie

My second Cinnie, the white Cinnie is progressing nicely.


 Cinnie begins with the centre-back, lace panel, seen here on the left.
Worked over only 35 stitches, it knits up quickly.  Once the centre-back panel is complete, stitches are picked up along the long sides of the panel and knit out to form, first,  the sides then the sleeves of the sweater. 

For my size, this portion needs to be 7 inches before I move to the next step.  Measuring this morning, I see that I am there.

The next step is to fold the garment over at the shoulders and  seam the lower, underarm sections together.  That leaves a sleeve opening which is worked in lace until desired length. 

Hopefully, I have enough yarn to make the sleeves on this version  slightly longer than last year's green Cinnie. 
Those sleeves, I made to suggested length.   They work nicely over a sleeveless top or one with very short sleeves.  But with  slightly longer sleeves, Cinnie should be even more versatile.

Great idea. I'm looking forward to seeing it finished. Going over to Ravelry now to check out the project page for the original one.
Have a great day!

Looks so beautiful on you. Does it really close in the front? My build might leave me tugging at it all the time. Cute pattern!
