16 Weeks of Weekender Milestone 8: The Back

Not sure what this is? Check out the 16 Weeks of Weekender master post here!

FINALLY we're out of the round! But it's not too crazy, just knitting back and forth, some gentle short-row shaping, and ribbing for the shoulders. 

The only thing here that might be tricky is the short rows. Andrea Mowry includes a tutorial in the pattern - this one from Purl Soho. This tutorial is one of the best. My advice is to read the whole thing first to get your bearings (find the headings -that's the helpful part). If you follow these instructions, you shouldn't end up with any holes in your short rows!

Let us know how the short rows go for you in the comments and on Instagram!
