And this is as far as I can get right now. I have the pattern for the sleeves and the neckline, but from row 90 to the shoulders is fairly indecipherable in it’s current state:
It’s not completely indecipherable, but I may need to cast on at row 89 and knit my way through it. I can understand these crazy-pants directions, because after all, I did write them, but I can’t really write them out again without the physical rows in question staring me in the face.
