After I ripped back, I started from scratch the second time on December 3 and finished on December 24 – that’s 22 days because I knitted on the 3rd and the 24th.. Yes, I was knitting more than usual to meet a deadline but remember that during those 22 days, I spent two entire days on the road and 5 days with Chad, Nicole and Addie and probably didn’t knit more than a couple of hours during those 7 days. It truly is an easy knit and it’s fun and intriguing, which makes it seem to go more quickly.
What I tell every new knitter is this: Do not worry about step 2 or 3 until you’ve finished step 1. This pattern will make you abandon your project before you even start it if you read the pattern and try to figure out where you’re headed. It’s impossible and you really have to blindly trust that the designer had her head on straight and will get you to the end eventually. If you try to think this one out, you’re going get frustrated and confused.
Here you go . . my finished, blocked and ready to wear Hitofude! It seems to be hanging a bit crooked so please overlook that the left side is hanging down farther. It’s just the way it’s on the form and not the way it’s made.
Here’s one of the fronts pulled up so you can see the design.
And, here’s the back:
With the modifications I made, the back falls just below my hips.
