Anyone still working on Hitofude? If so, will you please check in and let me know where you are and if you’re having any changes, and if you’ve made any modifications.
Saturday, February 20, is when we are supposed to be to the point of the underarm seams. I will not have much internet time this weekend so any of you who are past that point, please check in if you have a chance and see if anyone is needing help. My guess is that most of you who are doing the project have already reached that point.
The last time I had worked on mine was early in the first week of February . . around the 2nd or 3rd. Then I got sick. Then by the time I was feeling better, Vince was sick and home from work. Today I feel good. Vince has gone back to work and I’m back to working on my Hitofude. I just finished Chart B (though I was still working on Chart A when the above photo was taken).
To make mine longer without making additional fullness, and because I don’t have much extra yarn, I’m doing the following extras below the “waist” ribbing”:
- For my size, instead of doing 4 repeats of Chart A, I did 5.
- For Chart A, instead of doing it once, I did it once and then did Rows 9 – 16 again.
- For Chart B, instead of doing it once, I will do it once and then do Rows 9 – 16 again.
I think that’s all the increases I’m going to do. That’s actually 8 rows more than I did on the first Hitofude and I liked it so I’m going to see how I like making this one just a tad longer.
I’m already thinking about a third one!
