I've finished my miniature version, but my dd is sick, and doesn't feel up to trying it on yet. I'll post pics as soon as she's feeling better.

We are all succeeding in creating a beautiful Tempting II Summer Top...and being creative, we are in "making it our own"! Some are making the sleeves just a bit different, some are making the neckline a bit different, some are making the yoke a bit higher or lower...ALL with beautiful results! My congratulations!

We are awaiting more photos, whenever y'all are up to it!

Knitting on the band
Artlady, I have the 5 inch of the band knit. I am going to start putting the band on the sweater in the morning. I just wanted to make sure I'm reading the pattern correct. On the w.s. row of the band, knitting in reg. pattern ( I do not knit a st. to the neckline ) Is this correct? I know that I do ssk to the neckline of the yoke on ea. r.s. row. Just wanting to make sure I understand the pattern
I will be getting a picture of D.D. in this before the weekend is over I will be posting pic's.
Sorry I have been so slow in keeping up with this. I would just love to knit the other sweater KAL you have going, but I'm afraid I am a little late for that and I'm a slow knitter also.
You have been a great help to all of us on here. I love to see your work also.

Hi Indy!

Regarding the Central Park Hoodie! You are not too late to begin the CPH! We just had a new CPH knitter sign on today! She is getting her yarn this week! I will continue to follow the CPH-KAL until people get tired of it! So by all means, when you are ready, I'll be there!

Regarding the band: oh I wish I could sit by you and show you! It is one of those things that is sooo hard to describe.

But here goes: Let's say your yoke is by your left hand and your neckband 5" is by your right hand. Now, cuddle the edge of the yoke up next to the neckband. The RS of the neckband is facing you.
Then....rib 10 out of 11 neckband stitches. [You will be ribbing in the direction of the yoke.] When you get to the 11th stitch of the neckband, instead of just knitting it...perform an SSK with it and 1 stitch from the yoke. (that SSK Is what joins the neckband and yoke together!).
Then.....turn your neckband to the WS, and rib back.
Then....turn your neckband to the RS, and rib those 10, SSK the 11th stitch with another stitch from the yoke.
Repeat these two RS/WS steps until all of the yoke stitches have been joined to the newly created neckband. The neckband is created as it's attaching itself to the yoke on that RS 11th stitch.

Hope this helps!

Now, I have heard that some knitters have cuddled their neckband up next to the yoke so that the SSK (or K2T) will be performed from the WS...but that is ok, too. Just so long as you join that 11th neckband stitch to a live stitch of the yoke.

Don't get thrown off if your neckband placement seems like it should be joined (SSK'd OR P2Tog'd)with the WS row facing (instead of a RS row like I did.)

The principle is the same, whether from the WS or the RS.

Neckband
Good Morning Artlady, I'm up and at em early. My DGD stays over most fri. night's. I though I'd try to get some knit on this before she comes to try and help . I hope I'm not getting real critical of my work. I see HOLES at the point where the band connects to the yoke when I pull on the band just to move it while working on it. You can't see them in this picture much, thought I'd post a pic to see whatcha-think. Oh yes I forgot, am I going the right direction? I'm knitting clockwise.

Everyone is moving right along. I have to admit I am still at the 5 inch mark for the neckline. I was panicing thinking about what I was going to do at the neckline point for the band, and I put the whole thing down.
So, now I guess I should just worry about knitting the 5 inches and then look at where to go from there. Not worry so much about what comes next until I get to that point. (where have I heard that before, don't look ahead!)
