I'm Back...

I have completed the upper back for FLAK Part 4. The length of the saddles are 5", the back neck opening is 7 ", my cross-shoulder measurement was 17" so I needed to add 2" of filler (double Moss Stitch), from the center of my saddles to the sleeve depth (H) is 9".



Now, on to hubby's FLAK sweater while we wait for Part 5 of the FLAK instructions. I will need to adjust things slightly. Our chest measurements are the same but his neck opening and sleeve depth is larger.

Looks great!

Did you measure your 9" from the center of the saddle or the cast-on edge?

Gorgeous, Terri! Your measurements are almost exactly what I will knit mine to. My gauge is a little off, so I won't have to add any moss stitch to this portion, once I FINALLY get started, that is. I am trying to get all this other stuff finished. Too much on the plate (needles).....

What are those pins on the markers? I bought them but do not understand how to use them. I do not use markers after I get the pattern established.

Dear Anonymous, they are just Locking Stitch Markers by Clover. I left them in place so that when I come back to the project I won't have to remember where the cable changes are. I could have used any kind of stitch marker. I just happen to like these.

Your FLAK looks great!! I read on another blog about a chart that I noticed you are using. Would you mind sharing the information with me. My e-mail address is msloloknitter3@comcast.net
