Great work and lucky grandchild.
Thank you for the compliments.
I knit really
slow and writing out what I'm doing as I knit would slow me down even more.
Besides I do a lot of "unwritten" things I'd never be able to explain. The continual shoulder/neck bands was a new concept and required ripping out several times before I got the look I wanted.
The castle pattern is 50 stitches wide and 74 rows tall. There must be lots of basic straight top set in sleeve patterns it would fit on.
Oh, it's for my general contractor's new baby. Her daddy and grandpa build houses, but I knit a castle for her. lol
